Whenever I return to what is surely Colorado's most magnificent mountain range, the San Juan Mountains in the southwestern part of the state, I'm struck by how much change takes place year to year in terms of demographics, land use, politics and development. Yet much more remains the same. This book presents both visual and written observations of some of the changes on one particular stretch of road in San Miguel County. Original paintings and hand-written text are mounted on tabbed pleats on the fore-edge of the cover. The fly leaves are pamphlet stitched into a limp binding of heavily worked over suede with suede doublures. The back side of the image pages and text panels are relief printed from a wood block. Housed in a custom drop-spine box with the relief printing block forming the tray base.
