The book he has chosen to exhibit is Respite (Markandya). Woodall describes it: "Through his hand-cut and painted lettering in Respite (Markandaya), Schumaker related a parable without visually depicting it. The story––which came to the artist in a dream and which he sees as a variation of one in the Sanskrit text Bhagavad-Gita––follows a small boy emerging from the mouth of a whale. The text over several pages reads: " 'I hope you enjoyed your rest, my son,' said the whale / then it turned and re-entered the waters / the little boy smiled, waved good-bye, and turning towards the rising son / began to sweep the beach."
The book will be on display from 04 March thru 02 July 2017.
