art note: At the end, the author describes Ms. Lee's unique process of creating each page. She draws and colors the panels, paints background colors and textures on pieces of lumber; cuts out parts of the panels where she wants the background to show; and then uses Mod Podge (the popular 1970s decoupage medium that is basically white glue) to glue the layers to the board. The results are rich, organic, and beautifully layered images. You can visit Ms. Lee's website to see some of her art.
