an abecedarium of original rhyming couplets for almost every letter.
each spread (2 square pages) has a third segment which folds over and conceals the second panel – as “yes” does here:
First I wrote the text, then collaged all the pages, then lettered the texts.
text is precise, and fixed. images are metaphoric and fluid.
text is about a moment of casting thought into words.
images preserve the story and let the meaning shift.
so the text is circumspect, for the most part : tucked in, standing off to the side, sheer, small. etc – so that usually your experience has some distance from my story until you choose to read it.
