by Rouanet, Marie
Limited to an edition of thirty, of which twenty-five were for sale. Marie Rouanet's text was inspired by ten mezzotints (eleven plates) by Judith Rothchild and the spirit of the restaurant, The Mimosa, created by Bridget and David Pugh. The book is comprised of a suite of prints and text in loose sheets of Hahnemuhle paper. The text was printed letterpress on an Albion press by Mark Lintott. The boxes are covered in Fabriano Ingres screen printed with mimosa leaves. The colophon is signed by the author and artist and the prints are initialed by the artist.
