The page on the left was created by me.

I chose this paper because it seemed to almost continue the theme from the previous layout. I also liked it in contrast to Judy’s beautiful black and white design.

The words are really simple, with “found poetry” created from pre-printed phrases from a Tim Holtz sticker book.

VANISHING VISITORS
chronicled from time to time
sometime in the middle of the night
THE STARS ARE ALWAYS SHINING.

The right side is from Judy Wood. It is actually the back side of a page she contributed. I didn’t want to cover it up, or hide it because I loved the strong, graphic design of the pseudo journaling. Instead, I’ve incorporated it into the book as an actual page.
