Another passionate, intimate, and somewhat humorous look into the universe of beloved Karuk artist, singer, poet, activist, and dancer, Brian D. Tripp (AKA BDT). As with many of his assembling books, BDT swings from the resonance of the micro – his constant personal inner dialogs (in this book he focuses on the almost universal ritual of the morning cup of coffee), with the macro – his Karuk culture and history (including illustrations of Brush Dance regalia and other Karuk ritual and practical artifacts). His oblique and often blurred multiple personalities (including ‘Me’, ‘Myself’, and ‘I’) narrate the iconographic landscapes of Karuk territory from numerous perspectives reflected by the myriad of transparent and opaque papers, media, and page sizes, and the multi-layered collaging that this wonderful book employs.
