- Folklore series: Treehouse and Kodama - November 28, 2014 -
Treehouse and Kodama are the first two editions of the folklore series. The inspiration behind treehouse comes from my own personal love and fascination with tree houses. When you are in a treehouse, there is this magical feeling.. it is quite unlike anything else. Being up in the trees with a slight breeze. The leaves whispering, the calm sway of the trees. It is one of a kind, and without fail it brings simple inexplicable joy. I remember building my treehouse with my dad when I was a child, and then as an adult I built a treehouse with my kids. The memories and feelings of wonder were just as familiar playing in the trees with my kids as when I was a little guy. The magic of being in the trees is only a climb up a ladder away. I have considered these houses in the leaves, and how attractive it must be for the forest sprites. A place for the spirits, the kodama to enjoy. I imagine the countless abandoned tree houses in the woods. Or the ones that are all quiet at night being irresistible for them to occupy and more than likely a big part of the magic one feels in a treehouse has to do with these guys. It is a little place where the tinkerings of man and the natural way of the woods come together. So I made this edition, and its little companion. To celebrate the magic and wonder. I went with an antiqued white arches paper that compliments the woodland mood of the editions. - Joe
Important note: each edition of treehouse includes a matching numbered edition of Kodama. Kodama is made to be a companion edition to treehouse. I printed up a few extra to offer for those who perhaps would just want the little one, or who cannot afford treehouse.
