"Tread Softly- W.B. Yeats," 2009

A series of ten tiny zines. Each accordion-style book opens to reveal an array of black and white photographs. Covers + text have been silk screened. For those interested, the text that binds the book reads as follows:

Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams

W.B. Yeats

Sam
