Walla Walla Next 7 Exits.
Walla Walla, Washington:: MKimberly Press,, 2009.. Edition of 50. 6 x 9.5"; 108 pages. Letterpress printed on Rives BFK paper. Linocuts. Bound in brown cloth with embossed design on back cover. Illustrated pastedowns and free end pages. Crafting a work of art," Whitman Magazine (December 2010): "Blocker and Elena Mitchel '10 — a 'super talented' art major — collaborated to create book art. They took photographs and then, carving for hours, turned those scenes into linoleum blocks that were made into 48 prints of life in Walla Walla: faces of farmers who sell produce at the farmers' market, a special take-out box from a bakery, a spilled glass of wine. "It's the kind of collaboration Whitman wants for its students: The student's ideas and approaches mix with the instructor's. Blocker believes such collaboration strengthens flexibility skills — pre-conceived notions change as 'everyone's voice is weighed.' Mare Blocker, October 2010: "[A book of] linoleum blocks of scenes and people in Walla Walla. There are more than 60 prints in the book, and it is sewn on linen tapes and bound in a cloth-covered case. Elena Mitchel '10 and I each carved prints for the book and collaborated on the images, collation and the content. I printed and I am in the process of binding the entire edition." With wit and insight, the linocuts present a mosaic of faces and places of the community of and around Walla Walla, Washington. The page after the title page is a series of highway signs: "Caution No Warning Signs Next 93 Pages." The colophon information is printed on tombstones of a linocut of the local Mountain View Cemetery.
