Blood on Blood

Notes: Artist's book made of 20 single-page short stories, printed letterpress in silver ink on black paper. Each story is illustrated with a linoleum block print mounted like a photograph using paper corners above the story. The form of the book is a spiralbound album that was disassembled, printed, and reassembled.

The colophon reads: "I have always loved to tell stories. This book celebrates twenty years of mining my loved ones for material for my work. Quite simply, thanks to my sixty-three first cousins, my bazillion other cousins, my friends, and of course my immediate family. Now the facts—The acid-free recycled paper 'memory books,' were printed with silver ink and Century Schoolbook type. The linoleum cuts were printed on Magnani Pescia. Much appreciated technical assistance provided by Kelly Roberge, George Glassman, and Buzz White."
