I was inspired to make this book as a gift for my dear friend David when I found a small incense tin at the second had junk store. Measuring 3" x 2", the distressed tin was the perfect vehicle for this book. A few years ago, during a dark personal time, David gave me a collection of cards designed by Rashani Rea that included her original design paired with excerpted quotes from Tarchin Hearn's "A Sheaf of Poems (1981 - 2010).
On one side of each individual pages is a photograph I made of a dandelions gone to seed, on the other is a quote from Tarchin. The pages are not meant to be in a specific order and can be shuffled and reshuffled for new associations and renewed thinking.
