The Mrs.5000 Report

You probably already noticed this in your own copy of the most recent Bound and Lettered....


...but Mrs.5000's piece A Short Course in Recollection is the lead image in the article on the nationally touring "Marking Time" Exhibit.


The exhibit is currently in Seattle, and will continue on to Salt Lake (March and April) and then such L&T reader-friendly cities as Denver (May and June), Cincinnati (July and August), and Easton PA (September and October).


But is Mrs.5000 resting on her laurels? Not likely. Even as I type, she's down in her subterranean bookarts lair, working on a nine-"page" trilogy that looks something like this:




I think Mrs.5000 is amazing. She gets all mad at me when I say she's better than Joseph Cornell, but she totally is.

This reader is wondering when it is coming to London. I would even take Birmingham, Manchester, or Southend on Sea.

Awesome!! I love the numbers book.

And having no clue who Joseph Cornell is, I feel completely confident saying that Mrs. 5000 is better than him. =P

One of the things I like about Mrs.5000's work is that it often gives me a feeling like reading some of W. H. Auden's or Adrienne Rich's poetry.

Mr. and Mrs. 5K. are artsy-fartsy and smartsy, and Dr. Ken is a fan of them both.

Easton, PA! That's right down the road a piece - give us a heads-up with details when it's coming to town.

Joseph who? Kidding. I look forward to the Mrs. 5000 career-retrospective coffee table books. Perhaps one such "reading" will take place on this here blog.

Speaking of, not only is Mrs. 5000 talented and creative, she has an excellent agent and PR person, too! I'm just a wee bit jealous.
