Lillian is an accordion book with six panels, created for the Smithsonian exhibition Artists and the Science Book. The first and last panels are woodcuts drawn from illustration of Marcello Malpighi’s Anatome Plantarum. The panels in between the woodcuts are four color Xerox collages of the medical records of the artist’s daughter’s gestation. On the verso are six watercolors of plants found in the fields and woods of Western New England. Overlaying one watercolor is a section of topographic map locating a stand of old growth forest in Western Massachusetts.
