So today I worked on cover number two. My edition of IN THE TRENCHES, Hart Island, New York. All alone, without the aid of my trusted friend, I actually managed to make a book cover. Well, the paper on the spine is supposed to be reversed, and when I attached the palm paper, some of it shredded on the ends! But this is all about learning and letting go.

I did not photograph the process as my hands were gluey and it was all I could do to get everything pasted up. It is now sitting between sheets of waxed paper and pressed with all my art books on the floor of my studio (living room).

The first cover was made with a very pretty black paper, but it bled when we glued it. Here is the solution we came up with... add some rubber stamps and make it look like it happened purposefully. What do you think?
