Marin Museum Of Contemporary Art Altered Book Show

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.

Final piece with my red Hanko at the bottom corner.

Side view to see the 3 dimension using 7 different book covers to frame and support.
Got my handy drill out to put it all together...

The reverse side with the washers and screws and picture hanger.
