Paulette Traverso's ABéBéCeDarium

Marin MOCA 10th Annual Altered Book Exhibition

Life is good when you live in Northern California and keep your attention on beauty

Yesterday, my friend and collaborator, Paulette Traverso, won second place out of nearly 200 entries. The two judges of the 10th Annual Marin MOCA Altered Book Exhibition praised her clever idea, exemplary execution, and the fine line her work walks between the chasm of EEEEK and the humor that keeps us out of the snake pit that is life in 2019.

Consider this a visual blog post. I have more to say but I’m rushing to the next event in my blessedly art-filled life: Miss Brandes (my wife) and her work husband, the talented Nik Nakley are singing Bach Cantatas at Mary Magdelene Church in Berkeley.

‘Beauty is truth, truth beauty,’ — that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.
