A single-instance (one of a kind) artist's book with no text. A French-door cover opens to reveal a two-layer collage representing the Mona LIsa surrounded by a frame of magnolia leaves and flies. The top layer of the collage is attached to the bottom with accordion-folded black strips. Abstract star-like elements fill the border around the top layer. The title, date, and author's name are on a panel glued to the inside of the right "door" of the cover...

"Sampson made several unique books showing Da Vinci's 'Mona Lisa' as part of the citizenry of rural Alabama. This book shows the enigmatic lady peeking through the overgrown foliage of a Southern summer day while flies buzz around her iconic head"--Vamp & Tramp Booksellers website, viewed Feb. 7, 2014.
