Tanyth Berkeley “The Walking Woman” book
Tanyth Berkeley’s The Walking Woman is an extended portrait of two women on the cusp of invisibility in the American Southwest, braided together in a parable of banishment and atonement. Mary Austin’s short story of the same title (1907) begins on the book’s inside cover and is woven throughout Berkley’s lyrical photographic narrative. Pale purple book cloth and cornflower blue colored paper interspersed throughout the book play off of Berkley’s delicate color palette. Title and colophon information are foilstamped on the book’s back cover, while an ‘Addendum’ is printed as a separate layered insert.
