Book Description Messenger Press, North Adams, MA, 2004. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Hardcover. Number 26 of 40 copies signed and numbered by book artist Valerie Carrigan. She won the Juror's Award for best book in show in 2014 at Pyramid Atlantic's biannual book arts fair. The book was also selected for the juried exhibition of the 100th Anniversary of the Guild of Book Workers. Valerie created this moving and compelling work in tribute to her sister after she died. Powerful close-up black and white images of birds are juxtaposed with text about encounters with birds Valerie experienced. The birds presented in the book - a barred owl, northern flicker, bald eagle, pileated woodpecker, and evening grosbeak - "are messengers, urging us to pay attention to the world around and within us". In the colophon she writes: "Wonder strikes at the soul unexpectedly against a backdrop of the common and everyday. "Messenger" was born of such moments, created for Julie Rae Carrigan who believed all living things have souls." With five loose bird images, each in a paper folder with letterpress text on the front cover. The images began as monotypes and translated to offset lithography. Printed on Arches Hot Press. Text was set in Tiepolo and printed from polymer plates on Mohawk Satin Cover. Housed in a grey silk covered slipcase with bird image inset on top. In fine condition. 11.5 x 14 inches. PRI/040615.
