Archival documentation from a series of poetry, made into chapbooks called “Items: Forgotten in Drawers” – basically freeverse poetry chopped up and pasted onto (usually olden) hotel letterhead, assembled amongst other paper ephemera items to create little tomes of eclectic-ness.

Then, each of the 3 cycles (so far), gets a special cover – front and back – made from other repurposed / forgotten paper (i.e. bankbook) and embellished (usually by hand) with other papery items (i.e. stamps or postcards) to make each of the run unique.

Oh, see a variety of the finished hand-made books featuring the front covers &/or read/see the Items: Forgotten poem pages which abide within.
