Here is one of my favorite things right now. This is the recent book Laura has made in collaboration with Portland artist Iris Porter. It’s called “26 insults” and is a hand-letterpress book with a stitched binding. The content of the pages feature 26 cleverly chosen insults, alphabetically listed from A to Z . . . that is from “Asshat” to “Zipper-Sucking Zodiac Ho”. The idea is when you need to insult someone in a very passive-aggressive way, you carefully choose the insult that best matches the deserving person. Then you tear out that page (all the pages are perforated for ease of tearing) and hand to that person. Then make a quick getaway depending on the passive or aggressive tendencies of that person.
The book is truly a work of genius . . . or geniuses. Laura has it for sale in her Etsy store Platemark X for $6.50. That’s 25 Cents per insult!
