The Bunny Book Prints

"Waking Up" Serigraph 9"x 11" By Mary Maki Rae (c)
Robert and I Hand Silk-Sreened this group of three Childhood Scenes when our daughter was about five or six years old - as samples of my illustrations for a book I was working on at the time.
The one pictured above - was inspired by her and her bright sun-filled bedroom with it's brass bed - Yellow gingham curtains & bed skirt - and her classic wooden toys.
Robert cut out all the stencils for the printing process by hand - and it still amazes me how deftly he captured the the child's expressions and all of the details that define the art image.
We screened a Limited Artist's Proof Edition of 30 - including samples of the text pages with modern folktale-like border designs - to send to publishers.
(Very Nice Prints of the scenes can now be found here:
