rubber stamps & scrawlings in an atlas circa 1915.

this poem http://studioeight.tv/phpbb/viewtopic.php?t=10863 'inroads byways & gravel driveways' is tinily scrawled at the beginning of the atlas. afterward it's a variety of randomly generated poems and ramblings i've not yet had the opportunity to type. except that one.

the aforementioned atlas in its entirety scanned and ordered properly:

the poem at the beginning of the atlas recorded:

'inroads byways & gravel driveways'

i like this piece, mb.

"the aforementioned atlas in its entirety scanned and ordered properly"

that one line, I strongly believe, should be incorporated within this work... with the link, of course. the formal honesty encourages further searching for whatever the viewer is seeking, without having the work in their own hands.

walt: i am unwilling. thanks, i think it'll be treasured. even in its box.

mt: thank ye sire. it's a belated birthday gift. it's only late b.c i'm slow. but it's mailing monday i've told myself. that line does seem like a subtitle in a victorian novel eh?
