Dry Water by Carolyn Leigh

from Portals on Camino de Oeste

[Dry Water by Carolyn Leigh - cover: 38k]

Dry Water integrates my poem and my visual concept into a single sculptured book of the Tucson Mountains. The left peak cover contains pop-up plunge pools representing the mossy remnants of rain. The right peak pages represent a flash flood as it churns down Camino de Oeste Wash.
