Collection Rotation: Tammy Fortin - New Covers for Old Classics
The return of our regular feature Collection Rotation! Each month someone special organizes a mini exhibition from our collection works online. Today, please welcome (back) writer and rock ‘n’ roll star Tammy Fortin.
Last month I relocated from San Francisco to Lansing, Michigan, for my wife’s job. While she was at work every day, I myself, being unemployed and highly organized, began the slow process of unpacking and putting things away. I started with, arguably, the most important objects in any home, the books. I emptied them all out onto the floor and started stacking them according to subject, and as I was doing this, I began fantasizing new covers for some old classics, sparking an idea for this collection rotation.
I give you:
