The Incomplete Guide to Milk and Honey is a collection of stories about milk and honey.
The entire book was set in metal and wood type and letterpress printed on handmade papers. The
honey stories were printed on a Twinrockers western handmade paper. The warmth of the paper’s
beige color visually punctuates the honey stories. In contrast, the milk pages were printed on a soft
white Japanese rice paper. The pages have a folded fore edge and are bound using a dos-a-dos piano
hinge to reflect the duality of the content.
