The Pointyhead Chronicles, Part 1: Voodoo Vademecum




Here are a couple images of the Voodoo Vademecum, Pointyhead Press' latest project. It was included in my 'And Still the Binder' exhibition at the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington, in 2007. Here's what Maralynn Cherie had to say about it in the catalogue:

"Don Taylor has been involved in the Wunderkammern project for a number of years, creating his own fantastic objects. One example is his Voodoo Vademecum, a piece of parchment covered with signs and symbols, a breath mint tin, chicken bone and corn meal. This folded document is housed inside a small box. Here the book is interpreted as a form used by a Haitian Voodoo priest (Houngan). A ritual unfolds as the parchment is opened."

The complete catalogue can be found on my website:

I will be revisiting other highlights from Pointyhead Press' back catalogue, but in the mean time, if you would like to find out more:
