"The text for To come upon a street was written & designed by AB Gorham. Visual design, printing & binding by Michelle Ray" -- Back cover.

Construction: tunnel & accordion structures, photopolymer images and text on machine; made and handmade papers.

To Come Upon a Street is a collaborative effort between poet, AB Gorham, and artist, Michelle Ray. This modified tunnel book explores a bawdy street scene as viewed through a voyeuristic lens. The sculptural layers of letterpress "ladies of the evening" echo the four visually and verbally complex stanzas of Gorham's work, creating a piece that is kitschy yet tender; a celebration of delicate visual smut and witty double entendre. -- from Michelle Ray's web site
