This was my first big altered book project my “I” book .The Punch book covers  a significant time frame for me as I was born during this period.As with all altered books Punch sits in a special cubby waiting for the muse to be so that I have to alter them.I’ll dip into the text and try to understand the cartoons some are timeless, others need decoding for political and social context.
