Five Cent Cure

“Five Cent Cure” is an original handcut collage on a vintage book cover.

This old Histology textbook cover, is set to hang on aluminum wire, embellished with actual (devalued) Mexican pesos. The Histology book delivers a colorful plate of cells, which forms the background for an anatomical diagram, filled with all sorts of odd players. Old books and catalog imagery promise “5 cents down, $2 monthly”. The book edges are worn with some original writing and stains, but the collage is protected with a high gloss finish. Truly a one of a kind treat.
