A New Book Cover


Marchand de feuilles, a small publishing house out of Montreal, Canada, is publishing a reprint of the popular novel Marie-Helen au moins de mars by Maxime Olivier Moutier.  One of my collages (above) is privileged to reside on the cover...perhaps you should all learn French and go buy this lovely little volume...

Dear Mary Is On Her Way To Decatur





Each year there is a lovely showing of artist's books presented by the Decatur Arts Alliance in connection with the Decatur Book Festival in Georgia.  This year's show, entitled "The Book As Art: Boundless," runs August 19 - September 30, 2016, at the Decatur Branch of the DeKalb County Library, and will include Dear Mary, an accordion-style artist's book created from a 1931 college yearbook and nine vintage college photographs which I altered with hand-embroidery, beading and appliqued fabric scraps.  The only text in the book are the messages that were handwritten to "Mary" by each of her fellow students at an unnamed college in Waterloo, Iowa.
