I repaired the box. The glass is plexi, it is pitted, scratched with mildew stains. the box lining is warped. the posters continue to shrink. the bottom was coming apart, i screwed it back together. wiped off a crust of pollen and grime. gave it a wash of slow set gilder's oil. gave it a speed dry with the hot sun. laid down aluminum leaf. burnished the leaf to an almost hard tack (t?); rubbed in non oxidizing gold dust, light sipe with a milky tacky brush. laid down more aluminum leaf. inscribed sharpie drawing. i saw the silhouette of gloucester in the leaf, then signed it. one more burnish. done. the only audience? a man taking a deep lumbering nap on the rise behind me.
