A good wife wouldn’t / Lise Melhorn-Boe

Melhorn-Boe, Lise. A good wife wouldn’t. 1997. 6 pages. (8 1/2 x 10 1/4″). Archives and Special Collections, University of Calgary.

From the artist’s website: This story about a woman who wants a dishwasher, but whose husband won’t let her buy one, even with a prescription from her doctor, and money from his parents, was told to me by Danielle Hart. It’s a tunnel book made of pink handmade paper hands with colour-copied images of dirty dishes, washed dishes in a drainer and a dishwasher at the end of the tunnel.
