Art Library Rare Books Collection N 7433.4 .T476 C65 2014 box 3.1

Limited edition of 65 copies, numbered and signed by the artist, Art Library has copy 2. "This book illuminates how few words are needed to ignite the imagination of the reader. It is part of a larger body of work that I have created in this direction since 1994 which I refer to as 'text paintings'. 'A Colorful Tale' was created for an exhibition ENGAGE: Color, Ritual & Material Studies at Kutztown University in Pennsylvania (November 2014). It uses a stark white paper with a special 'hammered' surface for both text block and the entire case binding"—Artist's statement at the 23 Sandy Gallery website, viewed on March 20, 2015.
