This is my first spread concept for the Tender Buttons poem selections. I’m still in the rough stages of the process. However, I feel that I’m starting to close in on an idea and general direction. This has been a very challenging assignment for me because the subject matter of the project is so loosely defined. I am starting to overlap redundant words so that they are in a layered manner. I am also giving the more prominent “garment, or fabric” words a poem by poem uniqueness to match the way that Gertrude Stein characterizes them.
