The images and text contained in Vertebrate Dreams are a result of what the bones have told me.
This very limited and miniature edition of 9 hand bound copies contained partial reproductions of a selection of my bone panels with accompanying text.
The spine is made of bone and sandalwood beads. Marbled paper and cloth was used for the cover. This title is out of print.
Aria Nadii’s amber glazes are thick with the resonance of a living tradition as they capture the essence of its ancient origins in their layers. The descriptive text, written by C.P. McDill, sheds light on the technical creation of the paintings while hinting at possible interpretations of the images contained therein. The paintings themselves now reside in private collections about the globe.
These small books include 13 full-color reproductions of some of Aria Nadii’s best loved miniature paintings. Signatures were sewn in, lush embroidered fabric was used for the cover and embedded within, a print of Perennial Love. This tiny edition of 20 copies was so well-loved that it sold out in six days.
