In Defense of Common Weeds

"In Defense of Common Weeds" is a hand-printed, hand-bound book made in the spring of 2009. Built around a visual pun, the text in the book celebrates unrestrained growth both in plant life and in creative invention but the text overwhelmed and crowded out by the very growth that it celebrates. As the plants growing out of the “gutter” of the book consume the text space, the self-aware text curses the growth in spite of its earlier praise.
