Bionic Hearing Press Out of Print Title:  
   

The Grumpies
By Aimee Lee
Ithaca, New York: Aimee Lee , 2010. One-of-a-Kind.

2.5 x 2.5 x 2"; 16 pages. Inkjet prints on handmade cotton/abaca paper. Ink on knitted pine paper yarn. Covers of handmade cotton paper. Signed by the artist.

Aimee Lee: "The knitted yarn is from Habu Textiles, and then dyed with hand-ground calligraphy ink, the cover made by myself, and the printed poem is on paper made at the Morgan Conservatory. I had intended at first to hide the sewing on the spine but then decided that the messiness was in keeping with the message of the book."

...
The morning deer venture out
And cheer you

As does the message from a friend:
She woke up grumpy, too.

$200 (SOLD)

Myeongwol/bright moon talisman
By Aimee Lee
Ithaca, New York: Aimee Lee , 2010. Edition of 4.

2 x 2.25 x 1.25"; 16 pages. Dyed and woven hanji (handmade Korean paper). Knit pine paper yarn. Pen and inkjet print on handmade paper. Signed and numbered by the artist.

Aimee Lee: "This book references Hwang Jin-I (1520 - 1560c), a famous gisaeng [female entertainer] during the Joseon Dynasty, who was known for her poetry. Her gisaeng name was Myeongwol, which is written in Korean characters on the cover of the book. It translates to 'bright moon,' which is the first English text in the book. I developed a book cover made entirely of hanji, or Korean handmade paper, in the tradition of jiseung, or paper weaving. I dyed hanji with natural plant dyes, cut it into strips, cored it, and wove it into these book covers. Each edition is slightly varied in that it exists in two different colors, one dark, and one light, much like the phases of the moon."
