Week 40: Doors of Green and Blue

   The book-of-the-week for week 40, Doors of Green and Blue, is a travel log of a trip through France and Italy expressed as a series of photographs of doors and gates. In addition to the digitally printed photographs are collages from handmade paper, pastepainted papers, and collograph prints. The title was letterpress printed on the cover with 36-point Bookman type. The book was bound as a stiff leaf book with black book cloth for the hinges.
