Artists' Books 1995


Fragments from a Stacked Deck Judy Anderson.
Fragments from the Stacked Deck. Atlanta: Nexus Press, 1995.

In a boxed set of thirty cards, such as those used to tell fortunes, Anderson uses text and symbols to respond to reports of violence against women. Fragments of text taken from newspaper reports are mixed with images and personal reflections.

Talespin Susan Bee.
Talespin. New York: Granary Books, 1995.

Susan Bee's collages were printed offset on Rives BFK, then hand-painted. Bound by Daniel E. Kelm and staff at The Wide Awake Garage.
Inspired in part by the melodramas and mysteries published in popular magazines of the 1880s, Susan Bee's Talespin mixes images of childhood with the unexpected dangers and pitfalls of adulthood. The theme that emerges from this stream of associations is a loss of innocence and gaining of experience with a healthy dose of feminism and postmodern irony thrown in.

Rejected from Mars. New York City: Granary Books, 1995
