Top: “Redesign For Bygone Eras” series. 1955 sheet music cover (once belonging to Henry Young) with typical diamond shapes, reworked as 2015 collage. Below: 1983 collage, “Lady Walking A Fish”
Page from an 1803 book on writing bought many years ago at the old Pageant Book & Print Shop on Houston Street in New York. At the time, I found this akin to my own hand drawn “flyers” project in both letter variance and form. Also, since no means of photographic reproduction yet existed, any pages from the work of former eras had to be redrawn by hand and reproduced anew, giving them now a particular charm.
