Fall, Spin, and Turn

By Irene Chan
Washington DC: Ch'An Press, 2011.

7.5” x 2.5" [19 x 6.4 cm] folded toy construction. Two miniature books slipped in the wings of the paper toy.

This little book that is a toy deals with corporal punishment from the viewpoint of the child.

Irene Chan: "In a personal story about a childhood toy, this book is about corporal punishment. The cover of the book spins in the air when released from a high point." Text excerpt: "I would imagine that instead: I was moving in space, dancing, spinning, and doing pirouettes."
