Mail art by Lucky Pierre (with Diane Keys & Richard Canard) (Charleston, South Carolina, USA)
The Karnival of Trash continues with an epic Trashbook by Lucky Pierre (her second entry in the greatest show on earth). This is a brilliantly conceived and executed work that incorporates both the Aesthetic Trashbook and the Anti-Art Trashbook.
Independent of Trashpo, Lucky Pierre is showing increasing skill in the book arts. I am sure a Trashbook was an interesting exercise and challenge for her; certainly it is a great benefit to us. Many accomplished book artists have experimented with the Trashbook form with notable results. This Trashbook was carefully wrapt in paper indicating the junk mail theme:
The piece is maze-like and a bit DKhaotic. My documentation will not be exactly linear, but I hope to capture the essence of the work. An aerial view:

Thanks as ever to Lucky Pierre!
