Its a heart wrenching  sight let me tell you.  When I wake on a strange Monday morning in  deletist Thought Police mode, all my books scramble for cover. They KNEW, just KNEW today was the day. Selected for recycling and make over is Bones of Contention.

This book was over 10 months in the making believe it or not.  It began life as a treatise on bones used to support Darwin (proved to be fake), became an altered book, then a completely remade book (9 months work was pulped and made into this) NOW its going to be something else again - mail art. So when you get a piece of strange looking paper pulp with one of these, know that it was a book before.

Know too that nothing is ever lost, it is born to be remade.

Angie - watch your back garden when she does this - it looks eeek for quite a bit while all the bones dry :-))) Or go on safari - that way you get to pick up dried bones. Tell her I said thank you :-)

Hello you lot - nice to see you all together at the Bone-a-part party. Dark Wall :-) Now YOU leave Glimmer Boy alone!!!  Play nicely everyone!!!  Marie - I dont know if the bones will get through customs - sniffer dogs and all.  They are bones from all creatures great and small :-) The thigh bones took FOREVER to dry... I have to keep those for something else.

CP-SA - this is a bone-ified work of art & your writing is a bone-us. glimmer boy blew a gasket over that busted cell phone. i came over here where the conversation is more pleasant & there's nicer things to look at
