Description

"This is the second of four 2009 Small Plates editions published by the Imprint of the San Francisco Center for the Book--Colophon. ""Printed on a Vandercook Proof Press by Allison Weiner, Pam DeLuco, Katherine Case, and many other volunteers and staff at SFCB""--Colophon. Signed by artist. SFCB: ""Rabbitpox, written and illustrated by Allison Weiner, casts rabbits as the heroes and the pawns in a tale of biological warfare. The story is inspired by a 2004 Harper's Magazine item describing American scientists as having engineered extra-lethal forms of mousepox, cowpox and, of course, rabbitpox. Allison's book combines text, inventive design, and diagrammatic illustrations with a whole lot of personality to find humor, absurdity, and alarm at the dark extremes of biological science. ""Each book is housed in a handmade box and bound with thread spun by Pam [De Luco] from the fur of her pet rabbit Charisma, a white German Angora who reportedly had a show career. ""Allison [Weiner] is a Bay Area creative who studied at Stanford University, The San Francisco Art Institute, and the California College of the Arts. Rabbitpox is her first artist's book edition. It is Charisma's first foray into book arts as well."" http://www.vampandtramp.com/finepress/s/sf-center-for-the-book.html"
