One Hundred Footsteps was a collaborative project with writer Jennifer Wallace. The project was inspired by a medieval Japanese collaborative poetic form, the renga, which often is comprised of 100 verses.
In this series of collage drawings and haiku-like poems neither poem nor image were illustrative of each other, rather they evolved from parallel contemplative moods. The images are reproduced from originals and the poems are letterpress-printed. The poems and drawings make up five volumes; each volume contains 10 poems and 10 images. Each of the five volumes in the set is contained in an individual case and the entire set of poems and images is contained in a hand-made slip case.
