DESCRIPTION

In this series of altered books, I approach each book as a vehicle for promoting individual re-reading of the accepted norms and conventions of the past.  The removal of selected text creates and alternative reading, "reconfiguring of its reality".  Although the transformed books are visually and conceptually new, they still retain their old identity and history.
