Everyone Some

Incongruous word dichotomies set the tone for this artist’s book, dealing with issues of the hybridized personalities that exist in all of us. Each word is bisected in half—the book's pages are split down the middle—to allow multiple combinations within subsequent word pairs and to further push the boundaries of each pairing's fluid definition. For example, daring latebloomer can become daring beefcake, daring savage, nelly savage, x-rated savage, controlled savage, or controlled visionary with just the flip of a page.

8.5 x 8.5 inches. Hardback with black cloth cover, spiral bound, 33 leaves, each a digital inkjet print of hand drawn lettering from India ink on 100 lb. Bristol board. Black, railroad board end pages. All pages are cut across the horizontal center to allow for multiple word hybridizations. Signed edition of 10.
