Copies of THE OBSERVER now available

July 27th, 2014

In April 2005, I was the Von Hess Visiting Artist at the Borowsky Center for Publication Arts at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia where I produced The Observer. This small palm-sized book has my portrait every decade, from a girl of ten to a woman in her fifties. The eyes are cut out to reveal alternately the young eyes in the older face, then the older eyes in the younger face. It is a humorous, jarring, but truthful study of the process of aging.

10 pages 3″ x 5″ Offset printed with Duotones and varnish on acid free 120lb cover stock.
Spiral bound Edition of 300 copies $30

I recently obtained about thirty more copies of this book which I am able to distribute. Find it here at my store and use Paypal to order.
