Summary
"Composed from select nursery rhyme verses and lyrics in which the absurdity of the narrative is amusing and provides the perfect farce for this tale. Kim Maher is a MFA Candidate at the University of Iowa Center for the Book in Iowa City, where she studies letterpress printing, hand papermaking, and sculptural bookwork. Hoping to entice the viewer into a false sense of pacification by subtly revealing a much darker illusion she examines defense mechanisms-notions of escape, breaking free from restraints or oppression. She incorporates the pop-up format to capitalize on the wonderment one first experiences when opening this type of book"-- http://www.abecedariangallery.com/store/?p=1181 (as viewed on 6/28/2013)
