MMOCA has an annual Altered Book Show with around 150 entries. I was fortunate to receive an Honorable Mention this year.
I have always been intrigued about how our minds can translate a portion of a letter and know what it is. I used a discarded book of English verses and collaged them on small squares then placed portions of a Bodoni font that relected the letter in the verse. I framed it with discarded book covers. I designed a new Hanko at the bottom right corner. I called this piece Forms On My Mind.

|Got my handy drill out to put it all together...|
