Over the years I have had interesting collaborations that have resulted in several artisan books in special editions

"Fresh  off the press"

 a book published by suntup editions

 about Schindler-"Schindler's Ark"

 I was honored to make the broadside with a "Magen David" watermark,

in a numbered edition of 77 copies.

January 2023

i'The first book I took part in is "The Last Tape" -

A short play by Samuel Beckett

with engravings by Avigdor Aricha,

which I was privileged to make the paper for,  while studying at the "uncle Bob paper mill" in Beer Shea

under the guidance of the late Joyce Schmidt

The book was published in 330 copies in Jerusalem

and dedicated to the memory of Dr. Moshe Spitzer

A book born from a collaboration with my friend Itai Altshuler, A poet, painter, printer, high-tech and therapist, who discovered our shared love for the forgotten poet Shin Shalom,

who was also my great uncle .

The book is in the form of single pages,made  of linen fibers, dyed orange, and accompanied with Itay's prints.

I made the box for the book from balsa wood.

We made only 10 copies that were "adopted" by Uzi Agassi from Even Hoshen Press

 The last book I published was written, designed and bound by myself 

(with the help of Tal Shimizu) in a family edition, on the eve of my father Joseph Neumann's passing in 2017. The book interweaves the story of his immigration to Israel with his brother, Walter,  together with the Juncus plant, whose properties I later researched as a source of fiber. How does it combine - you are welcome to read...

The cover and an attached page are made of the Juncus  fibers- "Samar" in Hebrew
