Details

When I was young I went through a phase shared by most punk goth kids I know…writing poetry.

I had a composition notebook, which is normal for me, in which the poems would be stored. One night I painted over the speckled print covers common to composition using a bottom pure black Indian ink I had been keeping for some time. At that point the book became The Black Book.

In college I wrote more poetry from a more traditionally trained position.

This project would represent the consolidation of The Black Book and some of the work I did at university.
