The Pueblo by James Allen

The Pueblo is a book excavation created with a found book about the history of New Mexico. The layers of pages reveal beautiful old engravings featuring the distinct landscape, architecture and people of this area. Bits of text combine to read 'the pueblo was sticking into the air like a church'.
