Forest began with pinhole photographs taken by Mary Agnes Williams.

We examined four photographs in three ways: woodcut, linocut, and a short poem. A two-color woodcut faces each photograph. Printed on the reverse side of each woodcut is a linocut; the poems are printed on vellum. The images are drawn from details in the photographs.

For the cover we wanted to create a three-dimensional representation of tree bark. This was accomplished by drawing a three-layer image and then cutting each layer with a saw. The layers were painted and laminated to a paper base which was glued to the hardbound cover.
