I received this beautiful hand-made book from Stephanie Blake. She incorporated found scraps of paper, photos, stitching, and even burnt the edges. What a delight!

Theresa, I am lobbying for Flannery O'Connor.

In fact, you might call Stephanie's splatterpo "A Good Man is Hard to Find."

Clearly, it's the blood of the Sacrificial Lamb.

Southern Gothic - that's a real genre!

 

Watson: What are we to make of this blood spattered everywhere?

Holmes: Elementary, my dear Watson.

Watson: I fail to make the deduction.

Holmes: Roadkill, my dear Watson.

Watson: DK!!!

Holmes: Yes, Watson. Roadkill art.That is the D-duKtion.

Ehem...

Forensic experts are at a lost as to explain the red splattering on the artifact. De Villo Sloan, a forensic DNA analyst tells the Inquirer, "These red markings are not human. We have been able to determine that much. We have not been able to discover an exact match, though. We are looking into it."

Authorities are perplexed as to how electricity could spark a fire in a house abandoned for 25 years. As the flames were quelled by the local Huntsville Fire Department, authorities found this artifact smoldering amidst the ruins. Stephanie Blake, The Mail Art Queen of Huntsville, suggests the artifact may have been left by someone wanting to be found. "Clearly, this is a calling card," Blake said, "This could be the beginning of something much larger than us."
