Overbeaten abaca papers; letterpress; long and link stich binding; natural dyes 

Disgraced Fate is a 10"x 7" link stitched bound book made from overbeaten abaca paper. The book opens out into a long skinny rectangle with natural dyes bleading out from the gutter to form a circle of golden yellow dye with a smaller brick red dye spot at its center. This bulls eye of color is surrounded by the vast space of the natural tan of the abaca where small lines of text float at different locations from page to page.
