Note
  • Cover title
  • Edition limited to 13 copies
  • "Illustrations based on images found in magazines and More Joy of Sex. Text constructed from words by friends and strangers who also contributed eye shadows and from an anonymous blog documenting an affair coming to an end."--Colophon
  • "The illusion of desire is powerful but transitory, and the arc it traverses unvarying -- the strong pull of seduction and allure at the beginning is tarnished over time as desire turns to neglect and rejection. Calypso traces this trajectory through two parallel story lines, that of women's cosmetics and of a love affair. The book was inspired in part by an anonymous blog documenting an affair coming to an end, and also by friends and strangers who were more than happy to be rid of the eye shadows they no longer wanted."--Artist's statement at Vamp & Tramp Booksellers website, viewed 18 May 2012
  • "Double-sided accordion structure [attached to plexiglas covers]. Print gocco, graphite, eyeshadows on Rives BFK and plexi. Printed title on front cover visible only through the shadow it casts. Wrapped in paper folder of Stonehenge Gray with gray organza ribbon tie."--Description from Vamp & Tramp Booksellers website, viewed 18 May 2012
  • Issued in a paper wrapper tied with ribbon
  • Artist lives and works in Portland, Oregon.--Artist's website
