Poetry Quilt

Poetry Quilt, is a personal anthology of 198 poems that Samuels has loved throughout the years. It is made of fifty of Samuels’ 1980’s drawings of her studio and from her window that she ripped into 3-1/2” by 5/8” strips, collaged, and then hand-transcribed in micro-script the poems of her personal anthology. The side-bar of the quilt is a bibliography including translator, editor, book title, publisher, year and an index to the poems’ position on the quilt.
