Text by Sarah Eckhardt

Produced in close collaboration with the artist, this beautifully designed publication features works on paper created over the past decade by Suzan Frecon. Large-scale reproductions and gatefold pages reveal the extraordinary details: watercolors are on agate-burnished old Indian ledger paper, found or salvaged old Indian paper, agate-burnished double-weight Indian jute paper, Chinese Yumei, Japanese handmade paper, Fabriano hot press paper, and Arches hot press paper.

Also included are excerpted texts by Sarah Eckhardt from her 2008 essay “Portio Minor: Suzan Frecon’s Watercolors,” reproductions of books from the artist’s library, and intimate photographs of the artist’s studio.
