mixed media; printmaking, sewing, plaster, etc
variable dimensions
The book pages contain quotes from the Seth books, transcribed by writer and medium Jane Roberts with the assistance of her husband, Robert Butts. Robert Butts made careful notes regarding the information Jane was channeling during trances. He also included little statements describing her outward appearance and actions during these sessions, and these are what I quote here. His observations are amazingly calm, neutral and everyday, considering that he was making them while his wife was undergoing dramatic, altered states.

The sewn pages are legible on one side, and just a mass of thread on the other.
