"The imagination is a spiritual aperatus, a luminous explorer of the world it discovers." Fredrico Garcia Lorca

This is the cover of my latest project: Mouth. It is a hand sewn book made out of glassine illustrated with thread and photos. They way people hold them when they aren't using them or when they are talking has been catching my eye lately. Most of the illustrations will be done in thread from photos of people. I tried asking people if I could take pictures of their mouths and all that got me was a bunch of people making faces at the camera. I still am not sure if actual photos have a place in the book or if it is a one or the other sort of thing....
