Janet Malcolm's collage "Abyss (from the Emily Dickinson Series)", 2013, with text from Marta Werner's Emily Dickinson's Open Folios: Scenes of Reading, Surfaces of Writing (University of Michigan Press, 1996).
"During the winter, spring and summer of 2013 I made collages that yoked Marta's transcriptions of the Dickinson fragments with images with images I cut out of store-bought books on astronomy," Malcolm explains in Granta, here; see more images on Slate, here.
Also, Radical Scatters: Emily Dickinson's Fragments and Related Texts, 1870-1886 (University of Michigan Press, 2000), viewable at the Dickinson Electronic Archives. Of particular interest: the images in "Mutilations: what was erased, inked over, and cut away," here.
