This year for the annual August Postcard Poetry Festival I decided to do assembled text pieces.
To learn more about the festival check out Paul Nelson's Link:
For the postcards I used vintage file dividers I found secondhand and an image from an anatomy textbook. On some of the cards I put a layer of watercolor, ink, pencil, or coffee (as above).
The book I deconstructed was a young adult science fiction novel, "Insurgent." My motivation for using this book was that it was 75 cents and that I liked the feel of the paper.
