These are fascinating Seth. I wish I could watch you make them. I see bits of some of your old work in there.

Love all of the typography and flaking texture in this one Seth.
I love the barcode, I normally add one into each of my pieces. I have no idea why it's just something that I have always done.

My definition of a bill...

BILL: any envelope with a window in it can't be good, refrain from opening!

I just love that splash of gold from the tickets and 'pull' tag on the right hand side. Your pages work so well together.

Fantastic! Thanks for the photos of the details, and I´ve found so many more details on the first pic - wonderful!

Exquisite.

Sorry for the typo in the last comment... got so enthralled here I dismissed the opportunity to proofread what I wrote until it was too late.

These are wonderful Seth, so intricate and rough and torn! Your new page in our book is gorgeous, I'm not sure if you got my email? (I was away this weekend). Your art is so unique. Roxanne

Loving this series! One of the reasons I love repurposing old work is to give it that feeling of history. You've achieved this very very well. Kudos Seth.

One of these days I'd love to see your work in person. It just calls out to be touched. Love those billboards.

This is really cool looking. It's going to be an awesome and chunky book. The textures are mixed so nicely.
