Redid a book I made as a school project in 1973, My Favorite Poems‚ handwritten and illustrated‚ bound with rubber cement and staples‚ covered in baggy turquoise corduroy. New version is 6x6 inches taking inspiration from Sister Corita’s I Believe In ... series. With cut-up letterpress prints brush lettered in black and white, sewn on cords case bound. I tried to match the corduroy.
