Tender Buttons - excerpts from the final

Tender Buttons!

The final poems were arranged through a method of verbal deconstruction. Each poem was read aloud, and then, using case, style, and changes in size, laid on the page in a manner that reflected the oral interpretation.

Minor mistakes, some small things I could improve on, but altogether I'm pretty pleased with the final product. Deconstructing so much text was a real challenge, especially since–being poetry–every word is potentially important. But (for a girl) I think I did a pretty good job of coming up with a concept, and then doing a good job of executing it and staying within a selection of variables to express everything visually.
