i made this book in collaboration with matt cipov (http://livejournal.com/users/808080
i covered carboard with this lovely orange marbled paper for the covers...
you can't really see that part in these photos, but just for your imagination.
then i took some library catalogue cards (i work at a library
& these are very easy to come by, as they are basically trash/notepaper to the library)
& found ones that i thought had interesting titles, and arranged them
to make a 'story' (i numbered them in the lower right hand corner with rubber stamps)
& then i cut 2"x2" cardstock to join the cards together, but left them unjoined
so matt could draw on them without impediment (joined by those little archival
double sided sticky squares placed on the backs of the cardstock). i drew
on a few of the cards & glued some things to them, & then i sent the
book to matt for his additions. this is the result. he did most of the drawing/painting
on the cards; i mostly just made the book - i can draw a little, but mostly just doodle girls
with no arms, fish, and umbrellas. my repoitoire in this direction is very limited.
& oh, matt rearranged the order of the cards, but both versions of the 'story' are still evident.
