Autumn’s Arrival is more
than the coming of a season;
it is the story of a Journey -
of the power of Love
and the radiant Hope
We just celebrated the 2nd birthday of our wonderful daughter Autumn Ember, and after working for a large majority of that time on a picture book about her adoption story it is going to print this week!
The book will be a 32 page full-color picture book that has a linen color with two metallic foil stamps on the cover. We will only be printing 1000 of these and I will be signing and numbering each one. They are being printed right nearby in Clarksville, Tennessee via API print productions.
*below is a preview of a couple page spreads
These books and the prints, sketches, and woodblocks used to create the illustrations will be released at an upcoming event here in Athens GA.
Book Release - Print Sale - Show Opening

Below is the crazy pile of 72 mounted original woodblock prints ready for the event.
