Rebecca Chamlee, prospectus: "Like the self-taught naturalists of the Victorian era, my recent work examines the intersection of my artistic and scientific interests by collecting and cataloging the natural world. I am inspired to record, interpret, and celebrate nature. "In my new artist's book I observe the natural world around me. Where Stucco Meets Chaparral explores the trails through the sandstone formations, chaparral, and oak woodlands that surround my home in an arid inland valley in Southern California and my connection to the landscape. "Where Stucco Meets Chaparral is a printed herbarium of local California native plants with stories of local and natural history and personal observation gathered during many years of daily walks. Detailed images of seven indigenous plants are letterpress printed in multiple colors in tight registration through their seasonal life cycles that contrast hand-carved representations of the environmental context where they prevail." Rebecca Chamlee, blog: "Tucked into the back cover of the Special edition and sewn into the Standard edition, there is a map of the trails of Corriganville Regional Park. It also shows the collection locations of the specimens in the book. Also, all the sites of the old movie sets from when the area was a popular movie ranch and location for many cowboy movies and television shows.
