St. Paul Boxes  2009

Natural Earth Pigments on Found Paper.  The 'found' paper are Teacher Grade Books from the small Indiana town my father's family came from.  Boxes of these ledgers survived the town's historian and family friend Bob Mitchell.  I chose from those designated to be thrown out.  They date from the 1920s (except the one Road Taxes from 1864).  Unlike the 'Mousseau Books' I don't see a relationship between their original production and my mark making. Like the 'Mousseau Books' the titles come from words found on the pages.
