On Suspicion That Windmills Are Books

In March I was invited–along with seven other writers and artists–by Container to transform a Rolodex Open Rotary Card File into a book-object. That book-object, On Suspicion That Windmills Are Books, is now on sale. Other participants in the Multitudes #1 series include Barbara Balfour, Lillian-Yvonne Bertram, Evan Kleekamp, james w. moore, Collier Nogues, M. NourbeSe Philip and Ryo Yamaguchi.

Inspired by Matías Celedón’s La filial (Alquimia Ediciones, 2012), I decided to use a Trodat Professional 5253 Heavy Duty Self-Inking Do-It-Yourself Custom Stamp to make unique impressions on the Rolodex cards. It was a terribly painstaking process (setting the three and four millimeter rubber type with plastic tweezers into a 2″ x 1 1/4″ text plate) but I liked the results.An e-book based on digitally enhanced versions of these master prints is forthcoming from Fence Digital. Stay tuned–
