Mountains of Vermont
Dartmouth Book Arts Workshop
Engineering Physics graduate, Marie Schwalbe, grew up in Vermont with the Green Mountains as a backdrop to her everyday life that included hiking and snowboarding. The mountains run North to South for about 400 kilometres. Marie undertook this printing and binding project as part of the ‘History of the Book’ class in 2015. She cut the pages by hand and printed the colour in gradations of purple to represent the legendary New England mountain sunsets and provide ‘atmospheric perspective’. The name of each mountain and its elevation is printed in letterpress and the whole is hardbound in a concertina style.
