concertina book "Love Sabotage"

        My cut up poem called "Love sabotage" is finally presented itself as a tiny, white concertina book: 

      "Love Sabotage" tells an adventure of love from an innocent girl's perspective. Embracing her first love with guillability and compassion, she is shattered when her lover decides to leave. The poem then unveils how time can cure the wound and one's life must go on, as the future always beholds unexpected happiness for who strive and search for it. 

          The poem is complemented with two collage-like surrealist illustrations, as the whole poem is a cut-up collage itself (from selected poems of Carol Ann Duffy, Sylvia Plath and "Chocolat" by Joanne Harris. The progress of this technique is explained in my former post here). Conveniently represented, I attempted this look in order to attract the viewers to read the poem, rather than enjoy merely the representation itself.

PS. Are you enjoying the start of 2013? Let's embark on something special this year!
