fungicopia silkscreen book exploring edible fungi
silkscreen book

Fungicopia is a screen printed accordion-fold artist book. The front side of Fungicopia features drawings of the fungi I studied--morels, chanterelles, chicken of the woods, maitake, and oyster mushrooms--as well as key details I noted--such as the time of year I found them, telltale smells, and special plants that grow nearby. The back side of Fungiocopia features my observations about how to find mushrooms, ideas about how to learn about mushrooms safely, and resources I've found useful for study and learning. These words are intermixed among a drawing of mycelium--the branching body of fungi that grows underground.
