Four Books (+ four works bound in one volume) (2010–2013)

These books are woven from various texts that sometimes collaborate, sometimes clash, but whose implications are still very much with us. The books were made as commercially bound paperbacks (available for sale through Lulu.com) and as hand-bound versions (made possible through a residency at the Minnesota Center for Book Arts).
