ABKey (Ripe Collection)

ABKey is the first book of the Ripe series. This children’s board book juxtaposes child playthings with adult world issues, creating an at times humorous, but also uneasy realm for the viewer. “A is for apple, B is for bruise, C is for cheater, D is for divorce…V is for vomit, W is for weight, X is for the words I can’t repeat.”

2010, Ripe collection, 4” x 4” x 1.5”, 30 pages, laser printed colored pencil drawings, hand-crayoned details, handbound
