Redepaired – a collab book by John M. Bennett (Columbus, Ohio, USA) and Diane Keys (Elgin, Illinois, USA). This is the first entry in the Karnival of Trash 2016 international mail art exhibition. Redepaired is published by Luna Bisonte Prods.
I am pleased beyond measure to open the Karnival of Trash exhibition I am curating with an extraordinary package sent by John M. Bennett. The jewel in the crown of this mailing is a copy of Redepaired, a collaborative book by John and Queen of Trash Diane Keys. The contents are breathtaking. So on the occasion of the impending Karnival of Trash (September 27-30), I will share the complete edition. Click pages to enlarge:
