The Grumpies


This wonderful little book is a one of a kind piece made by artist Aimee Lee.  She often works with fiber and handwoven paper, and a grumpy mood inspired both the design of the book, and the poem printed inside.  The pages the poem are printed on slips of handmade paper, and attached to pages knitted with yarn made from pine wood, and dyed with calligraphy ink.  The sewing of the handmade paper cover was left purposely raised and visible to contribute to the rough feel of the book and poem, an excerpt of which is printed below:

The morning deer venture out
And cheer you

As does the message from a friend:
She woke up grumpy, too

This book can be found in the Sherman Art Library Special Collection, N7433.4 L44 G78 2010
