A kaleidoscopic collage and stencil painted sketch and image sourcebook focusing on the human face. Williams used these type of books to both gather and sort subject-based imagery and to experiment with collage elements and page compositions. The result is an accretion of densely layered page spreads that suggest some kind of quantum-mechanical portal into a blackhole of human portraiture emanating from the 20th Century.
