inspiration: The images in this work were meant to be part of a series of children's books, a collaborative effort between the artist and a teacher. However, since the project was aborted, the work takes a satirically critical look at how things went wrong, incorporating a brief storyline and images that were to be used for the original work. []

related works: The aesthetics of this book relate to Van Horn's Black Dog, White Bark, specifically in the hand-sewn binding, abstract images, and compact size shared by both works. []
