                  Geographic Feb 1975 - quote
I have included out-of-context quotes from the original text on several of the pages.
This one reads, "Ate too much, ate too fast: Nearly sated, contestants prepare to bite the dust."

Writers may use the quotes as writing prompts for inspiration or reflection, as points of agreement or disagreement, or simply as places to begin a meandering thought journey.

                  Geographic Feb 1975 - inside front cover
I give the page number of each quote, when available. The publication information appears on the inside front cover.

I tore by hand each paper along a straight-edge ruler to give the pages a rough texture along one side.

I bound the book using a traditional Japanese stab binding stitch with metallic thread.
I collaged images and text from the magazine over the advertising on the outside and inside of the back cover.  The outside of the cover also includes a copy one of my original mandala drawings.
The front cover has a glass bead embellishment.

On the last page is my unique signature medallion, which also states the year I made the book.
