"These books [in the Flit series] were originated in 2002 and put into production in 2006. They were conceived as small visual poems. Images are paired in three double spreads, and gather around an insect or flower within their setting, upon Deuchar burn. Ephemeral like the Mayfly (Ephemera danica), they are printed on plain paper and fold like a letter into an envelope."--Weproductions website.
"Printed by inkjet with guaranteed Ultrachrome inks on character original wove paper, white cover, thread bound."--Weproductions website.
