I have written before about the wonderfulness of Alula Editions, the new art subscription service from Helena Keeffe and Amber Cady that publishes patterned textiles meant to be used and loved. To my great delight their second installment arrived on my doorstep just before Christmas, and inside a box stamped "Fragile" I found a beautiful drawing kit made of fabric printed with original drawings made by visitors to the Headlands Center for the Arts while Alula Editions was in residency out there last fall. I was one of those visitors, and as I unfolded the kit and found a whittled stick "pen" tied to the back next to a bottle of walnut ink and paper neatly tucked into pockets I remembered the joy of composing my own drawings with similar tools out in the open air on a sunny Sunday hike. The kit also comes with an empty bottle and a recipes for both the ink and a yarrow tincture, extending an invitation to return to the flora depicted on the soft cloth. The Headlands is such a special place to me, and this edition captures several aspects of its magic (i.e., its gorgeous natural environs, its commitment to experimentation) just perfect.
