This most recent work of the series (Scrabble books) makes the book a more tactile experience: a large room divider, hanging pendant-like fabric sculptural pieces, and clothing—costumes acquired from Center State in Baltimore. Imagine: a book that one can wear! I am pushing the boundaries of traditional books so they are now conceptual, visual items that one can feel. The wearer essentially becomes the story itself.
