So, there is, in fact a story attached to this and it involves you!
I had never heard of FOUND before, but I’ve always liked to collect other people’s old stuff. So, when I was browsing through the used bookstore and found the attached card, I held onto it (even though I didn’t want to purchase the book it had been in). As I continued my browsing, I came across a very interesting looking book. It was large, brightly colored and appeared to be covered in notes. I wasn’t sure what it was about, but I figured I’d find out later, it was too fascinating to pass up (I’m a compulsive book buyer and can’t walk buy a unique looking book. Even if I have no idea what it’s about). I slipped the card into it and continued my shopping.
I purchased my stack of books and took them home to discover what wonders they held. You can imagine my delight when realizing that I had unwittingly stumbled upon a book dedicated to a weird little quirk I thought I alone had. So, that is how I found FOUND and this card came to me on the same day.
Thank you so much for making me feel less creepy and also giving me my fix of FOUND!
FOUND by Leigh Anthony Dehaney in Calgary, Alberta, Canada
I found this in an abandoned house slated for demolition (#218, 25th Avenue SW, now demolished). There are about 20 of these and they all remind me of “photo assignments” from art college. Really interesting & conceptual images I think.
FOUND by Brittney Nichole in Inglewood, Calgary, Alberta, Canada
During a period when my car was in the shop, I took the bus to my babysitting gigs in Inglewood for a week – a VERY long ride. One morning I arrived pretty early, and instead of showing up at the door and hanging around awkwardly, I decided to take a walk. I found this guy lying wet on the sidewalk a couple blocks away. It took a little effort to preserve it due to its wet, fragile state, but it was so worth it.
FOUND by Lori Flowers in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
I found this stuck to a window on the fifth floor of the Rutherford Library on the University of Alberta campus. It’s written on a post-it note. It kinda makes me wonder what exactly the campus 5-0 did to whomever wrote this.
