Amid the bills, catalogues, magazines, and other post box ephemera, I found this jewel – an artist’s book by Alisa Golden. Several weeks ago, I signed up for a subscription series by this Bay Area book artist, and Time Travel was my first installment. Not only was it magical to get an unanticipated treasure in the mail, but the book itself is full of the whimsy – uneven pages, varying textures, and even a tea bag filled with the words “read me.” What a delight. What a reminder that art need not be complicated, expensive, or formal. This tactile treat made my day.
