Sharon Silverman's 50 MAILART BOOKS project -- WOW

Above and beyond "documentation"! This is a jaw-dropping gift. 

Sharon's project is here: http://iuoma-network.ning.com/events/50-mailart-books. She is working on what she calls a "small library" of mailart books, and she pairs each of the 10 pieces you send her with a work of her own. Below are just two examples of pages in the book she sent to me. The book is 8" x 8", and my scanner couldn't handle the size of the open book, so the whole black background surround of each page can't be shown here. In real life it's beautifully done, and Sharon truly amazed me with the works of hers that she chose to pair with the ones I sent. They seem to speak to each other. Sharon's are on the right; she does wonderful, inventive work:

Note:  Apologies for any uncalled-for dots etc. on these images from my scanner. It's an old, passive-aggressive, and sometimes outright vicious machine. I should send it for therapy.

A million thanks to Sharon, including and especially for her overall aim with this worthy project.
