"I printed Vertigo at Penland School of Crafts during a week-long retreat for instructors in September 2011, shortly after having been diagnosed with vertigo. The imagery represents things that make me feel better when I am experiencing vertigo, including water, cool air, sleep, and turning off the lights"--Artist's statement.

"Silkscreen and letterpress by Amy Pirkle, at Penland School of Crafts in the fall of 2011"--Colophon.

In double leaves. The images are two-color screen prints, with colors intended to "vibrate" against each other to suggest the experience of vertigo. The text is letterpress in Della Robia types and the binding is drum leaf with screen-printed cloth boards.
