In this series I utilized an antique book that was previously owned by my great great grandfather. The book contains handwritten annotations by him; he was a history teacher, and he used to write in Latin and German as well as English.

I do revere older books as sacred objects (usually I use cheap paperbacks for my artwork), so I always like to throw in a couple disclaimers: the book itself was severely damaged, and it was gifted to me by a relative for the express purpose of cutting it up.
