I am a student in the Modern American Poetry class at Episcopal High School in Alexandria, Virginia. My class worked on these books with visiting artist Wendy Wolf. Modern American Poetry is co-taught by Molly W. Pugh and Elizabeth Vorlicek and combines the study of poetry, from the Modernist era, with the studio practice of making artist’s books.

My daily rituals and my love of collage work inspired this book. I used a layer of tracing paper to create a sense of atmosphere in this book. I tried to illustrate the quiet, but hectic late nights spent cramming for a test in my creepy and creaky dorm.
