DESCRIPTION

In this series of altered books, Susan approaches each book as a vehicle for a re-reading of the accepted norms and conventions of the past. The removal of selected text creates an alternative reading, a "reconfiguring of its reality."

Although the transformed books are visually and conceptually new, they still retain their old identity and history.
