[Notes: Cover title. - In black cloth box with one peacock feather on cover. - " gessoed hardboard, acrylic and oil paint, antique tablet handmade paper and peacock fathers. The cover design was suggested by a 14th century Persian tapestry " - "In July 1998, I attended a FIU [Florida International University] Creative Writing Summer Program at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, with a group led by John Dufresne, professor and noted author. Exploring one afternoon on my own, I took a bus to Malahide Castle, nine miles north of Dublin, because I have a deep love of plants and had heard that the castle had twenty acres of magnificent gardens and that the finest part of the plant collection was situated within the four acre walled garden. Short on time, I opted for the walled garden only, which is subdivided into several sections. As I was meandering along smell ing the wildly fragrant roses, I heard a movement of an animal in the bushes. Curious, I turned in that direction and saw the tail of a peacock swaying as he scurried away. My natural inclination initially was to follow. Then I stopped when this thought came to me: "No, you don't have to chase him; you'll meet him later on the path." So I continued to the section beyond the roses known as The Haggard, which had a number of cottage type plants and wall climbers. Then farther on as the path curved to the next section of raised beds of alpine plants and shrubs, the peacock sat as if waiting for me. I thought as I moved toward him that he would probably scurry away. But he didn't. He continued to wait until I reached him, [and] then walked by my side during the rest of the journey through the lush Irish gardens. We were alone in the garden for most of that afternoon. As he left me, he spread his glorious fan of feathers. Tourists entered and observed us as we were reaching the end of the last path and were amazed at his behavior. I viewed it as some kind of mystical experience, one of many on that trip. - This piece, my first book, is dedicated to my teacher Carol Todaro and is an homage to Hedi Kyle, whose flag binding was an influence in the book's design." - Colophon]

Kathy Pearls of wisdom : a tale of one mind/ by K.B. Jennings.
- [Plantation, FL; 2001] -  pages; 36.5 x 36.5 x 7.5 cm. - Edition
"The cover is made of painted fresh water clam shells and the text
paper is Currency, 8 point, CIS cut into rounds. Graymantle was used
for the type which was set in a random rolling-wave pattern. The book
is bound with a raffia seaweed string and presented in a black sandbox
with white sand. The sandbox is made of wood measuring 14 ½ x
14 ½ x 2 ¾ inches and also has a wave-pattern edge to
compliment the book. The entire content of this book was written based
on the first paragraph of "A Tale of Two Cities." The deepest
meaning of Dickens' book can be summarized in his first chapter, but
while Dickens was using the past to speak to his present, this book
uses our present to contemplate the future. It is meant to be a springboard
honoring and perpetuating the Dickensian thought process. The description
on the box acknowledges the importance of the historical seed planted
by Dickens so many years ago. He gave us the ability to see how humanity
attempts to process the world solely through a system of opposites.
Where does that approach come from? Where can he go from here? This
book was created in the Fall of 2001 as a part of a larger body of work.
Pearls of Wisdom describes the human mind as the forum for that approach
to analyzing human life. Throughout my work a black and white mark (as
seen on the first page) symbolizes the conflicts that exist in the human
mind. The gray mark symbolizes the synthesis of the two halves, i.e.,
the birth place of unity and peace." - Artist's statement]

scariest physical phenomenon that any person has to confront in their
lifetime. Crying out "I'm losing my mind!" is usually the
result of desperation and despair, but for those individuals with debilitating
mental problems, it is too often the truth. If we regard ourselves as
the sum of our memories, then our memory becomes the personal history
that defines who we are and what we are about. Memory loss is equated
with loss of self. With the passage of years, Alzheimer's disease, amnesia,
illness and old age can erase a person's existence physically and mentally.
But spiritually? How long does the ability to be creative last? Can
personality still exist after the ability to communicate has been eliminated?
These questions, and more, haunt the minds of mankind, and especially
artists. Ageing writers, poets, and musicians as well as the visual
artists, such as painters and sculptors, all worry about the loss of
creativity, the loss of productivity, and ultimately the loss of personality.
These fears grow rampantly in today's world. However, there are miraculously
a growing number of artists who remain productive up to the time of
their death, their ages ranging upwards into the nineties. It is my
personal belief that creativity and productivity can continue in a person
throughout their total lifetime. But more importantly, it is my hope
that the value of their life's work doesn't diminish with the reduction
of their physical capabilities or their mental limitations."- Artist's
statement, p.
