THINGS TO TELL YOUR LOVER by Aaron Krach - Launch, Signing, and Mail Art
November 22 - 20, 2013
Join us to celebrate the launch of Aaron Krach’s THINGS TO TELL YOUR LOVER. In addition to signing the new book, Krach will deconstruct a few copies for guests to create mail art.
THINGS TO TELL YOUR LOVER includes 21 picture postcards created from Krach’s still-growing collection of photographs. Each image contains found text—signs, graffiti, advertisements—that can be read (or misread) as intimate messages. For Sale signs become love notes. Tags become erotic haikus. And seemingly straightforward gratitude can be saccharine and sweet.
Krach’s online archive (www.thingstotellyourlover.com) has attracted submissions from around the world. This new book marks the project’s debut in the non-virtual world and beyond as readers use the postcards to send messages to their own friends or lovers.
THINGS TO TELL YOUR LOVER is 22 pages, printed in color, in an edition of 500. It retails for $25 and is available through the Printed Matter website.
