The Intuitive Alphabet Collector’s Edition is an oversized version of a first edition by Michele Oka Doner, and includes spontaneous sketches throughout the book as well as an original drawing by the artist. Each cover has a hand-written title and is meticulously crafted of handmade paper with a naturally deckled edge.
The Collector’s Edition is designed to celebrate the traditional art of bookmaking. The spine is left raw to reveal the sewn-together pages. The uncoated textured paper is 100% recycled post-consumer overlaid with transparent sheets. With its evocative and thought-provoking images, Intuitive Alphabet underscores the connection between human beings and nature.
