Thank you, Maria

My sincere thanks to Maria Alexandra Vettese (aka Mav) for writing a wonderful foreword to the book. When I think back to how I first discovered Camilla's blog and artwork, I'm pretty sure Maria, through her blog for Port2Port Press, was one of the main connections. I have enjoyed seeing their printmaking and illustration collaborations over the years and have been inspired by both of their unique creative paths.

Maria's spirit of collaboration can be appreciated in her multitude of projects: Lines & Shapes, periodical publications of visual delights, co-founded with Lena Corwin; 3191 miles apart with Stephanie Congdon Barnes; and More, a studio workspace with Christopher David Ryan.

Maria is a great photographer and I enjoy her photo styling and flickr stream.
