Wednesday's card is "The Perks of Being a Wallflower," by Stephen Chbosky, repeatedly banned due to explicit teenage sex, offensive language, suicide and homosexuality. ARTIST: Chloe Seim. EXCERPT FROM ARTIST'S STATEMENT: I wanted to represent the intimacy Charlie shares with his typewriter, along with the transparency he conveys about being a social wallflower. One of the greatest issues Charlie must grapple with in this book is his own mental stability, due to childhood trauma. I wanted to reflect this through the slightly offset nature of the composition, which instills a sort of instability or anxiety.
