Book Pages were a new surface to draw and paint on at the time. I wasn’t thinking of symbols - words and numbers. The used and discarded pages and covers were surfaces that were already worn paper. I liked the segments of literature too. The old book pages show how we forget how our knowledge expands quickly by

outdated the information becomes.  Books seem to be at a crossroads.
