Mabel made an artist's book. Entitled Lulu Ama, it is full of mysteries. Why is it bound (with a binder clip) on the right rather than the left? Why are the images on the verso rather than the recto? Why is it shaped like this? That last question, at least, has an answer--that the paper came from some sort of little die-cut shaped notebook someone gave her--but what the image on the notebook cover was, or why it was that particular shape, is lost in the mists of time. However, leaving all of that aside, as a big fan of art and books and art books, I personally find this to be a perfect object. Am I biased? Yep. But that doesn't mean I'm not also right.
