(1/1 SitWithMoi Edition, St. Helena, CA, 2013)

THE SECRET is a mini-book created for the SitWithMoi Blog (with its series of "Tiny Chairs with Tiny Books") and the concept and process for making the book is described HERE

"E.R. Tabios" is Eileen R. Tabios' pen name for mini books (the name is minimized).

The mini-book's text is invisible because the book cannot be opened.  Both sides of the book are stapled shut.  Here is its front cover:

And here is a side view where you can see the interior pages but still can't read the text:

It's too bad that the text can't be read since it would reveal the secret to happiness.  Ah well, c'est la vie!

Eileen R. Tabios loves books, and has released over 20 print, four electronic and 1 CD poetry collections; an art essay collection; a “collected novels” book; a poetry essay/interview anthology; a short story collection; and an experimental aubotiography.  Her most recent book is 147 MILLION ORPHANS (MMXI-MML). Her next books will include SUN STIGMATA: Sculpture Poems (Marsh Hawk Press, New York, 2014) and POST ROMANCE, a collection of art-related essays. Her poems have been translated into eight languages as well as Paintings, Video, Drawings, Visual Poetry, Mixed Media Collages, Kali Martial Arts, Music, Modern Dance and Sculpture.  She’s also edited, co-edited and/or conceptualized ten anthologies of poetry, fiction and essays, the most recent of which is 2014's VERSES TYPHOON YOLANDA: A Storm of Filipino Poets (a fundraising anthology for the survivors of Typhoon Haiyan).  She blogs at EileenVerbsBooks.  Last but not least, as a youngster she was a volunteer worker at her elementary school's library.
