spam (3598) | hardcover, screwpost bound | 16” x 6” x 1” each
To me, spam is a fascinating everyday annoyance. It is really humorous encountering the new ways spammers come up with spelling and phrasing certain questionable content to bypass spam blockers. In the process of compiling information for this book, it was really quite interesting to see how spam varied from inbox to inbox based on sex and age. When thinking of how to conceptually represent spam for the covers of my books. I came across this shag carpeted pillow at a thrift store, and I knew right away what I was going to use it for. The fakeness of the smiling sunshine and rainbow was exactly what I needed to portray the idealism and false advertising that spam represents in a nutshell.
