How Can I Love You?
a romance in pieces
By Emily Martin
Iowa City, Iowa: Naughty Dog Press, 2000. Limited Edition.
4.25 x 5.5"; 33 pages. A color Xerox slice book. Card stock with a green plastic comb binding.
Emily Martin on her slice books: "I somewhat arbitrarily called them slice books, I think the form predated the Exquisite Corpse games, which did combine images but on intact pieces of paper. I had forgotten children's Mix and Match books, it certainly has weight as to the number of commercially printed books using that term for the form."
Color xerox images from one of her series of bookworks: "It Isn't Always Funny." Pages are divided in thirds, one image per third, for multiple viewing possibilities. No text.
