"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."
