Dime Novel Phonebooth Fill

In this phonebooth fill I used pages of cheap books I bought at Strand. I glazed them with bowlers wax and stained a few red before I crumpled them up. Luckily for the test it did rain a day or two later and the pages did not absorb anything. I like the idea that you cant read the content inside the phonebooth yet you are aware that there is content. This is something I feel is reversed with advertising where you read the image but there is no content.
