beat it

i kept seeing this image of a heart shaped pinata on a bunch of tumblrs. it appealed to me on a cathartic level. what i didn't realize was that it was a part of a project exploring The People of Paper by Salvador Plascencia.

this project consists "of a pinata stuffed with a series of paper cards. printed on each card was the name of a character in the book, as well as a provocative quote, the acronym TPOP, and a number indicating the page the quote could be found in the newspaper version of the book. upon completion, the author broke open the pinata." you can see the rest story of the here.

I couldn't believe it when I saw these photos! Sal's a friend from graduate school--he published the book while we were in the PhD program at USC (both of us left). So nice to see him again, here! I posted about it and linked back to you, btw. Thanks!
