- (aka DIY Stains, aka The Edward Ruscha Coloring Book)
Stained is my contribution to the ABC Artists' Books Cooperative's ABCED project. ABCED is a series launched on the occaision of Ed Ruscha's 75th anniversary, consisting of 33 books by 24 artists. The books are all 5 x 8" softcover books, and each title is a verb ending in ed.
Stained contains 75 numbered pages, each meant to be stained with a different material (based on the materials used in the Stains portfolio). The materials are listed at the front of the book and the owner makes the stains him/herself.
