(2021) Recycled Book Series


Coptic and stab bindings, re-used papers, bound in folders; varied edition of 8; various sizes

The pages of each book are an assortment of papers I’ve saved from high school notebooks, homework, old journals, and years of collected junk mail, handouts, and flyers. Sorting through my piles of paper quickly turned into a process for reminiscing. These books were made with the intent to be given to my friends, in hopes that the used pages would encourage a freer type of response than a blank page. 3 of the 8 have been given away.
