Buy buy

Originally uploaded by Jurassic2008

This was the second “Cliche” altered book spread which went with my “Bring Home the Bacon” one. In both, I explore the idea of women and economics–“Bacon” was about working women and this one is about shopping!

This one says “if the shoe fits…” and the flap says, “buy it” and the last page says “wear it.” When the middle flap is unturned, it just reads the original cliche “If the shoe fits…wear it!” As usual, I like to have something remaining of the original book and so the “if” is from the underlying recipe book.

And of course you recognize my signature habit of using magazine photos to reflect the contemporary nature of the message.
