This small folded booklet is printed on an oblong sheet of handmade paper. When closed, the cover lists words my clinic transgendered patients have called themselves. When the booklet is opened, He or She can be changed into the other by opening folded flaps, which reveal surgical sex reassignment procedures.

My little booklet is based on a ca. 1775 American juvenile booklet by James Poupard, in which the leaflets raised or let down turn Adam into Eve, or Eve into Adam. My booklet was printed with the help of students in Fred Hagstrom's printmaking class at Carleton College, Northfield, Minnesota, in 1995.
