This is a hand-bound artist book about locks and keys. Multiple layers of discovery are worked into each of seven different collages. You will find something new each time you look at this book.

"Life Examined" is a one-of-a-kind artist book.

I have used cut and torn paper, stamped and drawn images, embossed metal, and found ephemera of all kinds.

The book is approximately 6" high and 12.5" in diameter and does NOT close.

This is a piece of fine art and should be protected from moisture and direct sunlight. Some light handling is expected, but hands should be washed prior to handling to prevent discoloration from natural skin oils.

More books similar to this will be available soon. Other themes or colors can be made on request. Contact me to see if I can make what you want.
