All Done But None (Careless Press) 2007: This 32-page handmade book, about indecision offers up true-to-life stories as various options for the book's ultimate direction: no place. Anecdotes of ironic childhood tales include bad dreams, playing drums, and revelations of a dysfunctional family life and even childhood molestation, while maintaining the artist's humorous spirit. Limited to only 20, each book was painstakingly handwritten and hand illustrated in watercolor and ink over a full year's time, making each book an original work of art. This means that every book is slightly different. Each 7 x 11.75 inch (closed) book includes a 2-color etching, a dry point print, Solar plate print, and letter pressed handmade end papers from Nepal. It is hand bound in hard covers with custom stamping, and starched linen with a slipcover. All Done But None is part of many major library collections, such as the Nation Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, DC. and UC Irvine.
