Revolution, 50 Years Later, 2013, MS #105, 17.5 by 11.5 inches (h x w), 64 pages.
Revolution, 50 Years Later, was inspired by the statistic that in 1960 half of the US population was aged 25 years or younger creating great sweeping social, cultural, and economic changes in the US and abroad. The book content includes a timeline of major events that occurred in the US, UK, and the rest of the world, illuminated song lyrics of 6 Beatles’ songs, and an alphabetical list of all of the their songs and albums.
The artist lettered and painted with sumi ink, gouache, and watercolor on handmade paper by Katie MacGregor of Whiting, Maine. Joelle Webber of Mermaid Bindery, Westport Island, Maine, completed the binding and box. The book is covered with canvas painted to resemble the iconic 1965 Yves Saint Laurent ‘Mondrian’ day dress which, regretfully, the artist never owned.
