This is a book of beginnings and endings represented by the painted paper of ocean waves overlaid with poetic verse. We never know when one wave begins and another one ends no matter how many hours we may have our eyes on them.
At the ocean we come across groundswell, breakers, rough surf and the calmness of a steady flow of waves before us. We are reminded that time passes us over and over again in remarkable waves. We only need to go with the flow. For tomorrow is as unpredictable as the next wave.

Seven Deadly Sins ± Seven Heavenly Virtues - Lessons from the Financial Crisis of 2008
Paper Arts © 2009. Limited Edition of 7. $125.00.
This book harbors on the theme of the 7 deadly sins, one of which is greed, paired up with the 7 heavenly virtues. The inspiration grew out of the 2008 October Surprise. The surprise was not the invasion of IRAN by the lame duck president George W. Bush but the economic meltdown due largely to the housing bubble creating a large number of subprime mortgages leading to a plethora of credit derivatives and the presence of greed in the beginning of the 21st Century which led to a liquidity crisis and finally a recession, locally and globally. Human nature cannot resist taking a gamble on a good deal.
We all hope that this financial crisis steers humankind away from deadly sins toward the heavenly virtues. A glossary of the sins and virtues plus the descriptive terms of the financial crisis is included. Computer designed and printed by binder on Mohawk Superfine 80# text. 24 fonts used. The Seven Sins and Seven Virtues text are represented in a ticker tape fashion. Chapter Heading pages include paste papers and numbers hand stamped.
Handsewn onto linen tapes. Hand bound cover design with paste papers. Paste Papers on cover and throughout are all original hand painted designs, using acrylic paints and methyl cellulose paste, by Marie Kelzer.
96 pages 5 ½” H x 4 ½” W x ½” D.

6th And Howard ~ The Hugo Hotel
© 2007 Edition of 5. $85.00 SOLD OUT
The cross streets of the abandoned Hugo Hotel in San Francisco are 6th and Howard streets. A site-specific sculptural mural project consisting of pieces of furniture attached to the outside of the hotel was completed by the artist Brian Goggin in 1997. This flutter book chronicles the art project as it looked in 2001, when the photographs were taken. As of 2008 the building still stands as is but is slated to be acquired through eminent domain by the San Francisco Redevelopment Project. The “Defenestration” (an act of throwing someone or something out of a window) art project may not survive. Time will tell.
