William Harnett - The Artist's Letter Rack









Helene Cixous, from Stigmata:


So, there is a letter.
There is always a letter.
The letter, what violence! How it seeks us out, how it aims at us!
Us.
Especially women.
And more often than joy, it is some death it brings to us.

  2. thanks m! I'm so intrigued by both the actual letter rack, and then the illusion of it..I think I might just make a letter rack - but then what to stuff in it, emails?
