    Miss Floralia

    This extremely charming limited edition artist book was done by Catherine Alice Michaelis. They were created as a ballot project for her subscribers. Each card has an interview with Mr. Billy Bumble (pageant host) letterpressed on the back. It is both a spoof on beauty pageants and a fun anthropomorphizing of what personalities different flowers might have. Linoleum prints hand colored!
