"As a substitute teacher in Los Angeles, Trinie Dalton found herself required to confiscate the notes passed among her students. What began as disciplinary action soon became an obsession, and after three years Dalton had amassed hundreds of notes. The best of these were then sent to twenty-four artists, visionary doodlers who illustrated, interpreted, and reimagined. The results are collected in Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is.”—NPR
