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.

A collection of chapbooks called “Items: Forgotten in Drawers” made in 2017 from handwritten poetry created in Asia, Arabia, Mediterranean, then (roughly) transcribed and printed in BC, cut and glued to vintage hotel stationery in Montréal, bulk printed and collated in Vegas, assembled in Utah, and given as gifts for my birthday.

Each one hand-cut/stitched and (obviously) uniquely finished with stamps (postal and inky), with affection.  Run of 12 if I recall, most documented here. Turns out this collection is “Volume 1” as more similar collection have followed.
