From Noranda to Detroit : the first twenty five years / Lise Melhorn-Boe

Melhorn-Boe, Lise. From Noranda to Detroit : the first twenty five years. 1980. Many pages. (7 x 5 x 1″) . Archives and Special Collections, University of Calgary.

From the artist’s website: This book was rubber-stamped on my twenty-fifth birthday, while I was living in a blue apartment with silver ceilings, in downtown Detroit, and going to graduate school at Wayne State University. It is a cheeky look at my life up to that point. I wrote the story around the family photos which I had in my possession. I just sat down and started rubber-stamping. I ended up with two themes: “Look at those legs!” and “Is this art?” Traditionally sewn handmade paper pages with hard covers.
