  • Edition: Unique Work
  • Quantity available: 1
Portland, ME, 2002. Unique Work. Materials: Victorian photo album with drawer and stand, old photographs, various papers, mica, embroidery, photocopy transfer, graphite, collected objects.

Please read the poem on the first few pages, which ends, 'I only perceive the strange idea of family traveling through the flesh.'"
