dusi/e-chaps, 2007! (in order received!)

*Ray Farr, Two Hats Appear when Applauded, dusi/e-chap, 2007
*Anne Boyer, Selected Dreams (with a note on phrenology) dusi/e-chap, 2007
*Bronwen Tate's SOUVENIRS, dusi/e-chap, 2007
*Sawako Nakayasu's Insect Country (B), dusi/e-chap, 2007
*The Singer and Others, Eileen Tabios *a dusi/e-chap, 2007 (wrapped in newspaper, neatly strung with twine &sealed with a kiss..Eileen has put forth so much inspiring effort and time into this project...a very grande handmade gesture,now to dig into it more!)
* Memory/Incision, Joseph Cooper, *a dusi/e-chap, 2007. so delicate, I at first thought it a broadside...I happily found myself soon with 3 very different chaps in way of covers and style. like the innards of a book revealed these all very semi-kitschy covers utlizing old newsprint ephemera...side seam with a delicate sewed lining.
*An Instant of Flight, Anne Heide, *a dusi/e-chap, 2007. if Joe's was delicate, this is even more so. tidily packaged in a 'cover jacket/envelope with an attached sealing string enclosure) this chap is seamless, and appears on close inspection to have been handsewn! I love the different interpretations which are developing in this project!
