This is the second in a series of six handmade art books made by me between October 2015 and March 2016. One black book was produced per month. Each book contains my handmade paper, vintage pages from upcycled books and magazines, original black and white photography, original handwritten poetry in six lines, and original paintings. Each book has been hand bound and possesses a unique black cover. I gave myself strict guidelines in regards to concept, style and time. But, allowed for experimentation since I am somewhat new to the art of bookmaking. The perfect book is still a ways away.
The black books are my intimate meditations on loss and grief. I intend to continue creating handmade art books, but hopefully move beyond grief as a subject. This is some of what I have been working on while offline. I hope you will appreciate this glimpse into my books and I look forward to hearing any feedback you might have. I will show the third book next week.
