Sunset Iridescence is a one of a kind sculptural bookwork which reflects the essence of the wings of the Madagascar Sunset Moth. My work is very much about the physical qualities of the materials I use. The papers, inks and gilding supplies used to recreate the colors and iridescence of the moth are described. A comparison of color created by pigment and color created by the refraction of light rays is discussed. Parallels are drawn between the structure of the codex and the behavioral patterns of the moths. The local name for the Madagascar Sunset Moth is Lolonandriana - lolo for `spirit or soul, ' andriana for `noble.' I was inspired by this concept of the soul to publish a letterpress printed chapbook. Unlike Flying in an Airplane is a short memoir of one of my experiences as a flight nurse. It recalls the first moments of lifting off in a helicopter as I prepared to stabilize and transport a critically ill child
Gamete, zygote, embryo, fetus, neonate by Margaret Mae Heineman( Book )

"Volume One is a drum-leaf bound flap book which represents the eggs, sperm, zygotes and fetuses of birds, reptiles and mammals. It is a fundamental pictorial guide to the renewal of species in this current world of treacherous global warming. Collage and relief printed linocut images were created by the author using many assorted papers from India, Japan, Nepal, Thailand and Tibet that have accumulated in the artist's scrap drawer. Also included are UICB Case paper, Hook Pottery Paper Abaca and assorted papers handmade by the artist. Volume Two is a sculptural work bound in leather taw with sewn spine. It represents what scientists call "The Zinc Spark." Zinc molecules are a necessary part of a 'master switch' that controls the ability of a fertilized mammal egg to grow and change into a completely new genetic organism. At the moment when a single-celled mammal ovum is activated by the enzyme of a sperm, millions of zinc atoms are released into the extracellular space that surrounds the now fertilized egg. This zinc explosion is visible in an electron microscope if the egg is immersed in a solution containing a fluorescent tag. Repeating itself four or five times, this process resembles a dramatic, yet silent, display of fireworks. Using palladium leaf, Noodler's Bulletproof Blue Ghost Invisible ink and GloGerm powder, the artist has recreated the zinc spark. This phenomenon is uniquely visible with the use of a UV light."--Enclosed prospectus
