A yellow ribbon holds the book together, 26 pages, chiefly illustrations. Edition limited to 100 copies, signed by the artist. Consists of a Jacob's ladder structure in which photographs are attached on both sides. Photographs of the artist's family are scanned and manipulated onto Rives Lightweight and glued to foam core. Printed paper strips hold book sections together. Texts on paper strips use three different type faces: one reflecting the artist's recollections of her childhood; one quoting from The birth order book : why you are the way you are, by Dr. Kevin Leman; and the last quoting from the I ching, or, Book of changes. A yellow ribbon holds the book together.
