Encuadres, Personal Diary.

Mexico City: Nowhereman Press, 2000. Limited Edition. Original Wraps. "The idea of this book was to extract a series of texts from the artist’s personal diary, which would enable one to recognize, rather than the content of the text, the emotion that accompanied the experience, reflected in the many facets adopted by her handwriting at these very different times. The handwriting becomes an emotional record each of the real, concrete experiences that led to the writing of those twelve episodes selected from the diary. The book has twelve engravings made in Alex Ehrenberg's workshop in Mexico City, with twelve silkscreens made in Jan Hendrix's workshop in Mexico City, binded by Poncho Martínez. The book was published as a thank you to the Mexican CONACULTA GRANT called "Jóvenes Creadores" in the visual arts area led by Luis Lopez Loza." [artist statement]. Fine in Fine Archival Box.
