BAC: British Art Center copy in original glassine envelopes.
"First created in 2002 Perforated Love Notes were born from a frustration at not being able to articulate my feelings for others and all too easily letting go of those prime opportunities to give a compliment. Originally made in an edition of 500 on a photocopier and sewing machine (for perforations), they went on to be printed offset litho in editions of 1000 each in 2005 and sold in 5 countries."--Artist's statement.
