Seriously aesthetic trashbook from Diane Keys!

OK.  This trashbook speaks to me on so many levels! I will be blogging it over on the Postal Ledger soon and I may send it up to the Ritual Mail Art show, coming up with some ritual link, but I had to show it to you all.  It is an absolute treasure.  Raw trash that comes together like the best 'merz' (Kurt Schwitters)- absolutely aesthetic! I love it!  Thank you Diane.  

On another note.  I am turning everything into little books, so it's absolutely appropriate that it is mine!

It's nice to see Winston Salem getting a little exposure here! This is great work!

Contemplating each page, no sense arises, I lift off in a dream. Transcendental trash, Diane. Most grateful, Rebecca!

RC--i posted your shocking nekkid mail art at FB. It was very well received and I cant believe you found it on the ground. Blogging trashbooks is definately a chore if they are more than novellas so thank you Rebecca!

so glad you like it Rebecca-it felt good to make trashbooks again and I am in love with neutral color palettes for them. So that depends a lot on what kind of trash I find or receive. Thanks for posting it. It contains a couple of 'bits' of my original trashcollages.

The War and Peace of Trashpo. A stunning achievement.

10.11.14 Dare Ms. Rebecca G.,  ...too , too much....overwhelming!!!  Ms. Keys is pushing the concept of "Trashy Novels" beyond mere mortal comprehension. It's time for the involvement of sociologist, scientists, latin names & Refuse Encyclopedias. It must be a monumental chore just to post one  these here at the IUOMA &  I, for one, am gratefully pleased with your energy & efforts.Best to you. Richard C.
