This book is a collaboration between Barbara Tetenbaum and Julie Chen about the transformation of life experiences into narrative form. One set of text is written by Julie Chen on hinged sleeves and another set of text is written by Barb Tetenbaum on cards inserted into the sleeves. The two texts are unified through “glimpses” of Barb’s cards through cut-outs in Julie’s sleeves. This book was a finalist for the Minnesota Center for the Book Arts 2013 Prize.

The book is printed letterpress using photopolymer plates, found images, wood blocks, and handset type. It is housed in a box designed jointly by Chen and Tetenbaum.

The edition is limited to one hundred copies each signed and numbered by the artists.
