“This is one of a series of books where I combined two songs in various typographic arrangements, on transluscent paper and mylar. In Willow Weep, Don’t, I combined two songs: Willow Weep for Me, made famous by Billy Holiday, and Don’t Weep for the Lady, written about Billy after she died. The book then was used as a score for performances of the re-configured two song combo (now known as mashups). No longer available for sale.
