Give it up for Aunt Doll! Sharing her Aunt's realness with the rest of us in a rather fabulous fashion, Michelle Maguire, a photographer and prop stylist based in Columbus, Ohio, has published a "small-edition artist's book featuring eye-popping, hand-printed images of my blunt, funny, completely unimpressed Italian-American great-aunt, Doll, with colorful Aunt Doll anecdotes by my husband Aaron Beck."
"Aunt Doll, age 84, has lived in Canton, Ohio, her entire life. She cusses, loves cured meats, knows more about the NFL than you do, plays strip mall slot machines with her vegetarian hairdresser of 42 years, isn't trying to be funny but is, worships the sun from her concrete-slab patio, and frets about nothing except her beloved Italian bread causing her to pack on the pounds."
"Aunt Doll makes the most if it. The gist of her story: enjoy every chicken wing while you holler at the Browns on your gigantic analog TV, because we aren't here forever. She'll cuss you out in one breath and in the very next, offer you a salami sandwich."
Definitely good value and Michelle is also making the most of it over on her website in the Salami Dreamin' pages.
