Patterned Pleasures explores the beauty of mating rituals. The book compares the alluring act of aerial mating in leopard slugs with the positions taken during human sexual activity. Original text by Carrie Hempfer. Screenprint and letterpress printed to create patterns that entice the viewer to discover the splendor of sexuality.

My book was recently purchased by Yale, Harvard and The Brooklyn Museum of Art.  Click the link above to view my book in its entirety.
