The 36th publication in the Nazraeli Press One Picture Book series. From the publisher: "The ginger-and-white Twinka, born into an undomesticated family in El Cerrito, California in 1994, is well-known around the Nazraeli Portland office by artists who come to work on their books. Desperately Seeking Twinka is a visual diary of Twinka in conversation with, and in the laps and arms of, dozens of artists she has questioned over the years -- Robert and Kerstin Adams, Lee Friedlander, Toshio Shibata, Anne Tucker, Ron van Dongen, Jerry Uelsmann, Naoya Hatakeyama, Michael Kenna, Camille Solyagua, and Masao Yamamoto, to name but a few -- as she seeks out her namesake, Twinka Thiebaud. The book ends with an original print of Twinka and Twinka meeting face-to-face in the garden."
