From the Artist's "Jamaica Series"
Book artist and print-maker, Kay Rodriques, combines original prints and poems to ask questions about our place in the world. Her careful use of text and original artworks combine to make each of her books a creative/artistic physical object as well as affordable art that is meant to be held, touched, interacted with and enjoyed.
Her first book in the "Jamaica Series" is A Saltfish Tale, which made its debut at the 2019 Bay Area Book Fair in Berkeley, California. The final proof for book number two, My Grandfather is a Lime Tree, is now complete. Copies will be available at the end of 2019.
Limited edition artist's books featuring tales from Jamaica accompanied by luminous handmade prints on Roterfaden note paper.
Hand-printed in 2019, A Saltfish Tale is a soft-cover book in a limited edition of 12 copies. The binding is finished with red stitching on the spine. Each copy is hand-numbered and will be signed by the artist if so desired.
