I Found Out
Overlooked and overheard people and things are the subject of this palm-sized box that contains a miniature accordion folded book.
Overheard conversations are letterpress printed from handset Univers type on the outside of the paper box. The words "I Found Out" are also printed in wood type." Inside is painted pearlescent gold.
The miniature book has inkjet printed photographs of objects I found out on my walks with a short poem about shyness and people taken for granted printed via letterpress in yellow ink. The covers are mix and match in thirteen combinations, boards wrapped in book cloth I found in my studio from other projects; a penny is inset in the cover of each.
The books measure 2" square. The boxes are 2 1/2" square. There are 34 copies in this varied edition.
The first color is the cover color. Choices are: forest green, leaf green, bright cherry red, wine red, sky blue.
