old School Monday: P.P.O.W

The inception of the books,, 2002- 2003 P.P.O.W Gallery NY

Originally i was Attracted to the yellowness, but soon it became a project of rescuing books never to be read again. I strip them down and work with with the marks life provided. I then add my own and send them back out into the world. By stripping them down of anything that mighty scare off the audience, (I.E. Thickness of pages) i also work on the end pages where some people will read the summary of the book, and obviously a pictures worth a thousand words. My hope is that in this new format these books will be able to compete with moder media and return to conveying information as they once did.
