Instruction Manual for the Moon III, ©2008, Pages 1 and 2. I glued a moon map to a piece of thin plastic, cut out the land shapes and riveted them to the pages. The pages are copper, colored with liver of sulfur. The houses are brass, left over from an etching test. The roof on the right is from an old metal ruler.

Pages 5 and 6. The house is cut from an old record I found in the basement of a flat we used to live in. It was a goldmine, people left all kinds of good junk down there when they moved out.
