ISSUES IS US
Issues is us is a great set of artist books, conceived as a whole and put in a box, created by Christine Tarantino and mailed to me
The 5 books are inner connected and explore themes as:
The books are all made with recycled,
found or discarded materials
and then put into black covers
Size: 16 X 11 inches
It made me return to my second trip to the US
in 1997 when Mavis Avis Fenderson donated me
an artist book made also with discarded stuff.
During my travels I've always used this book
as an example how to make an artist book with
scraps and that not all artist books are the
result of so-called "fine arts".
It was great to see how Mavis' work (with whom I lost touch) surfaced again in the artistic and human explorations of Christine.
