This book is sewn with a dos-si-dos style binding where two textblocks are sewn into one extended cover, making two books that share one cover.  The text which is interspersed, woven, shredded, or glued in place is excepts from my poem Beet Love and from a short story I wrote last year.  Both the poem and the story deal with how people relate to landscape and in turn, this book explores how text relates to book form.

The text and images were transferred with wintergreen oil, giving it a watery, dreamy quality.  modified long stitch.  Winter 2009.  Photo credit Teresa Silva (http://unwornworld.blogspot.com/)
