Things Our Mothers Said.
Designed by Suzanne Moore. Persea Press, 1993. 27 x 1 15/16 inches unfolded, 1 7/16 x 1 15/16 inches folded, 125 copies. Plates and type printed letterpress by Art Larson at Horton Tank Graphics. Text, lettering, and binding by Suzanne Moore. The binding was painted by Nancy Ruth Leavitt.

“This miniature book has two long accordion folded sheets attached to a painted paper cover. One side of each sheet has multi-colored images by Suzanne that were inspired by children’s drawings. Suzanne’s drawings were made into magnesium plates, which she then inked by hand, and which I ran through the press. The other side of each sheet has some text printed in black. Both sides of each sheet are also hand lettered in many colors by Suzanne. This tiny book is a gleaming jewel and looks and feels more like a one-of-a-kind book than something that exists in an edition of 125 copies.”—AL
