2009: Poem Book 1

In 2009, I took a book arts class and learned how to bind books in various ways. I began to explore book making with my drawings and imagery. Combining drawing and my own poetic writing was a great way to express the sense of mystery that life offers.

Poem Book 1 gives the reader two messages that are also connected. If you follow just the white, sticker letter words, you get a question. Then you can read the hand written letters as a poem of sorts. Finally you can read the words on each page regardless of their categorization. Overall, there’s a message even though it may take some searching to find.
