"Silence is an Orchard is a handmade book of photographs taken in 2008 and 2009 in a field within Acadia National Park in Maine. Printed on Japanese kozo paper, it presents the work of five Northwest women artists including Lauren Henkin (photography), Kirsten Rian (poetry), Sarah Horowitz (cover etching), Inge Bruggeman (letterpress printing), and Sandy Tilcock (binding) — whose contributions combine to create a beautiful meditation, a visual journal of solitude and quiet."
