"Chickens today feathers tomorrow"
Artichoke Yink Press
Author: C.K. Wilde
Red silk with a padded spine, a triangular portal reveals the first page. The limitation of palate to maps, tickets, and pornography led to an interesting exploration of the male gaze and the projection of imperialism. A joined for edge tapes bound book, The obvious and logical parceling out side surface of maps has all the surety of taxonomy. The inside surface is the secret, the unconscious, the iconic as expressed through collaged pictures of people involved in coitus. The voyeurism inherent in prying the pages open to see the naughty bits creates a physical experience of the text. A nod to Mallerme. This book is in a private collection.
