Scraps through the Mail: "ObJecT" (scrapmail # 1, qbdp # 45)

Hilton New York, Room 3213, New York, New York

Tonight, I finished putting together a mailing that I had actually begun about a month ago when I was preparing a few large-scale visual poems for a gallery show. As I slathered ink across large sheets of heavy paper, I occasionally made errors and had to abandoned an entire sheet. After that happened, I used most of the sheets to clean off my pens as I worked on replacing my failure.

A few days later, I cut these sheets into cards. Tonight, I took these cards and made them into qbdp mailings, complete with a fidgetglyph ("ObJecT"):

Geof Huth, "ObJecT," qbdp # 45 (21 Feb 2005)

The image on each card, however, is unique, and the cards (when put back together form a series of separate images). This is the image from the card maintained in the qbdp archives:
