Michael S Moore: 89 Auto Biographies


"I am making a book consisting of the 89 "Auto Biographies"  [http://www.mikesmooreptgs.com/autobios_2013_stan/index.html] plus 22 drawings of "Every House I Ever Lived in from Memory" [http://www.mikesmooreptgs.com/every%20house/index.html] to be published under my Wall Spring Press imprint sometime quite soon, September of 2013 most likely. Together these two series comprise an idiosyncratic, illustrated account of my life in cars, houses, and, increasingly, life experiences [for those interested enough to decipher the text] up to the present day. On the other hand, taking text as texture, there are close to three hundred little line drawings floating among the scrawled letters that should be pleasure enough."
