Flatbed’s deluxe artist portfolio with Michael Ray Charles titled Every World Is A Head, Every Head Is A World includes seven fine art prints created by Charles at Flatbed Press using a combination of color lithography, aquatint etching, collage and blind embossing plus letterpress poem, title page and colophon. The completed suites are housed in hand-made boxes designed by Charles to have a Lincoln penny embedded on the cover. Inspired by images from the mid-19th century Charles addresses concepts of romance, beauty and beautification. He presents a progression from romance with oneself, in one's own mind, to concepts that entangle the head to the question, "If you can conceive beauty in your mind, can you conceive your body within that beauty?" This led to ideas of otherness and coexisting with others. "And in this final print," he said, "I think there's a lingering question: What is beauty?”
