Book #7: bedizen

This book was editioned in December of 2011 in Portland, OR — where for the first time in my life I did not travel home to be with my family for the holidays. Additionally I did not have a Christmas Tree or stockings and my gifts were exchanged by way of the U.S. Postal Service, and yet somehow I feel fullfilled and complete at the close of the year without these standard decorations and traditions.

I am left wondering about circumstance and it’s role as a catalyst toward revaluation as the new year approaches rapidly, almost unexpectedly.

These are images of the finished edition and artist proofs.
