Lauren Simonutti: If I do not have a photograph...I cannot be certain it happened





This is Lauren Simonutti's super-tactile handmade book for 2010, available from her blog, The Madness is the Method.


Simonutti's work is, in her own words:

"The misfirings of my beloved/despised mind that conspire to convince me to destroy all have rendered me housebound and led to a solitary life. I am a creature of past, proof, memory and imaginary friends."

"I have reached the point where if I do not have a photograph of something I cannot be certain it happened. So, locked inside the house with nothing else left, I shoot this"
