Cutting the text into the silhouettes—letter-by-letter—came next. There were no overlays or pencil lines to guide me. I simply ‘eyeballed’ the shapes to determine where each of the words should fall. I had a few extra copies of the book on-hand in case I made mistakes and had to start over. Remarkably, that only happened once.
"Lend your ears to music, open your eyes to painting, and...stop thinking! Just ask yourself whether the work has enabled you to 'walk about' into a hitherto unknown world. If the answer is yes, what more do you want?" --Wassily Kandinsky
