This is a flip book. When you flip the pages smoothly and fairly quickly, the image on the pages appears to move, like a movie. The image shows a housefly flying left to right, arching up, turning its body down and diving to the bottom of the page. And then... "splat." No more fly. Well, that is what fly swatters are for, right?
Once I'd figured out the images, I printed them out on beige paper, arranged them in order and poked a row of holes along the top for sewing stations for a stab binding. I laid the book block on top of the screen mesh of the fly swatter and stitched through the punched holes and the mesh, so the book is completely attached to the mesh.
At the very back of the book, I added an image of a dead fly that can be seen from the back of the book, through the mesh.
This book makes me laugh. And it made me feel creative again after weeks of just getting by.
