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.
