36 unnumbered pages : all black and white illustrations Edition of 500. "Snow begins to fall, grows denser, and obliterates my view while exposing the cosmos. Ice shifts, opening a beautiful black void. A wondrous view as I begin my descent. On Thin Ice, In a Blizzard is a subseries of my project, A Field Guide to Snow and Ice. While all of the images in the field guide are excerpts of natural landscapes--just not all snow and ice--the images in this book were constructed in the darkroom. A winter of my imagination." Stapled. Black paper cover cut-out in a shape, white paper inside with title displayed. Offset printed.
