The “pages” of this whimsical artist book were mailed back and forth between the two artists—each playing off whatever the other added. Artist Danielle Giudici Wallis was Carl Dern’s studio assistant, often fabricating his sculptured steel furniture. She became a close family friend and she and Marie collaborated on wonderfully unconventional books. Danielle earned her B.A. at Antioch College and M.F.A. from Stanford University. She runs Giudici Handcrafted, a one woman operation making bespoke footwear.
