There are many words and many interpretations for describing the human appearance. Descriptions for alter egos, incarnations, the human form, the images in the flesh, a personification, an impersonation or computerized avatar. All portray a surface but not the soul. I’ve coloured the pages with black-blue fountain pen ink. The page numbers are stamped with a numerator. The images are hand stitched and hard cover bound over tapes. The dimensions of the book are 90 x 140 mm and has a variable thickness. Therefore book doesn’t close properly. That’s a little bit the price you pay for a book made “alla prima”. Or better, it’s a charming bonus.


Resumé Pt.2

Some detail pictures of the “Resumé” book. Hand-bound over pink-orange dyed cloth ribbons. The signatures are sewn with orange thread and the photo’s are from my greenhouse archive. These are laser-printed over postcards of Albrecht Dürer’s alphabet, and stitched back to back together with a Singer from 1910. The poem is rubber stamped. 

Dorothy Parker was a master of the alphabet and sharp like a cactus to defense herself.
