Pages into poems

One thing you can do with old books it create black out or white out poems.

I use the word poem loosely. I like to go through pages and circle words that jump out at me. Then the “poem” makes sense to me, even if it is on a subconscious level.

I love to use the blacking out lines to create patterns, shapes and values. Again it is a meditative process, where I allow the finished product to evolve.
