This collaboration between Sheila Pepe and Ferrario International Postcards resulted in a set of postcards that give insight into the process and inspiration behind Pepe's installations and sculptures. The series contains three types of images: Pepe's own visual notes, photographs taken in Pepe's studio by an F.I.P. photographer, and photographs by Paola Ferrario that were selected through a conversational process between the two artists. Because of the nature of Pepe's work, it was important that the set incorporated ideosyncracies and manual labor, two of the postcards are hand-altered (cut and drawn upon), the gloss finish varies, and they are packaged in custom printed velom envelopes. There is a special edition of ten sets which each come in a unique hand-made fabric bag by Pepe.
