Romeo & Juliet by Sam Winston
Sam created these pieces by cutting out every single word from Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet and separating them in to three emotional states, Passion, Rage, and Solace. Once all three categories were complete Sam then used every letter from each word to design three unique prints to represent each emotion.

“Tread Softly- W.B. Yeats,” 2009
A series of ten tiny zines. Each accordion-style book opens to reveal an array of black and white photographs. Covers + text have been silk screened. For those interested, the text that binds the book reads as follows:
Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet,
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams
Oh wow, that is one of my all-time favorite poems! I hand-stitched it onto an 6ft illustrated quilt I made two years ago for an exhibition :)
