With pulp made from my parents’ old bed sheets, I remade a low relief, enlarged version of one of the envelopes from the love letters my mother wrote my father while he was away for ROTC in 1971. This was my first opportunity to build on the history of rag paper while working with fibers and text closely bound to each other.
