ANGEL TRUMPET, third in the trilogy entitled Luminous Bloom, has recently been released into the world of print that straddles fine art photography and artists' books. Hardbound and covered in sage-colored linen, it features 12 rich, B/W images printed on cotton rag paper, hand-sewn, signed, dated, and offered in a limited edition of 20. Each 4x6 image -created via multiple exposure- is an abstraction of the exotic flower known as Angel Trumpet, each stem and blossom shown in fragile perfection. Given context by an original poem by Margaret Langhans, each book is a striking expression of line, form, shape and tonality. It is preceded by earlier volumes POPPY and CALLA published in 2012.
