Death Made Simple

Death Made Simple is Eileen’s first artists book. In 1987, Eileen’s boyfriend Jim (now husband), got her interested in mail art projects. There was an international mail art project that especially intrigued her that was called Level 11 Dead Things. Eileen created Death Made Simple for the mail art project and for personal distribution. Death Made Simple is a parody of children’s activity books. It includes a morbid crossword puzzle, odd picture games, and other macabre tidbits, including connect the dots of Disease Carriers and The Diseases They Transmit and the picture puzzle entitled Help Joey Find The Dead Things.
