from 'Pearls'

In Pearls, Lee Weigel-Patten pays tribute to her family's extensive collection of East Asian antiques; it contains her dissertation, dozens of exquisite photographs, and an appendix of love letters exchanged at the turn of the century. A collaborative project wherein Chelsea Cowley provided tutorials on photographic, editing, and layout techniques and as ensured final production of this elegantly crafted volume.
