Accordion fold storage structure put together with double stick tape. Found things (fragments) letterpress printed on art wax papers.

"This book came from both the inspiration of some wooden type I purchased over the internet and collected fragments. Composition took place on the bed of the press. Lock-up's took a few hours with many cuts of lead, brass and hunks of plastina clay to hold it in place. For years I have been gathering "fragments" from the street, trash, pockets, bottoms of handbags...old books that I am restoring, and asking friends to save parking stubs, movie tickets or anything that had a patina."
