This is a detail of a masterfully wonderful piece that came in the mail today from Marie. Asemics?.Altered book pages? Haptic? All and more! Full-page view below reveals the delicacy and the poetry that Marie created.

White asemic writings, formal shapes, collaged texts...all add to this artistic symphony.

Circle detail is elegant with the white asemic writing flowing like musical notation!

Flip-side shows even more clearly the "musical" sounds....and the text: "she continues to feel..." Perfect!

Something to be treasured and "read" and "reread", dear reader...readers.

This gem arrived in a simple brown envelope....it arrived, Marie! Thank you sooooo much! xxx

It's like a bunker. It's like slate (a rock). It's like a symphony (music). I know! It's Bunk Rock.

Slate Bunker Book sounds like a long fall from artistic symphony, but it's right up there, I swear.

Slates and Bunkers :-)) you couldn't make me more happy!

So nice of Nancy to trans-slate Marie's Bunker Book.

It DOES look like slate Nancy, I also remember writing on slate when young - must be a bit of primitve man lingering in us?? For some reason it also reminds me of a bunker.

In the photos it also has the look of a slate sandwich, Marie, maybe because of the white asemic writing. Remember discovering as a child that you could write on some kinds of rock/stone with a smaller sharp rock/stone and the writing would be white?

You're too kind. To me it looks nothing more than a book sandwich ;-)) I guess i can't stay away from wholes for too long.

I think Marie always takes the most interesting approaches. This has an asemic style for sure, and there is much more than asemics going on here. She presents these elements such "reader readers" (singular and plural) and then square, circle, rectangle (not unlike the geometric approach Cheryl uses in #4). They just seem to beg you to fill in meaning, like a void or vacuum. I can't explain it well, but it's tremendous work.
