For two years I traveled the road between Starkville, Mississippi and Tuscaloosa, Alabama while I attended graduate school. This book is a collection of visual and textual vignettes in reflection of that trip; little pieces of the scenery and of my thoughts during that drive.
The paper is 100% cotton rag, handmade from my family's clothes. The six large illustrations are linoleum reduction prints, the other illustrations are line art drawings printed from photopolymer plates. The type is handset in multiple sizes of Lutetia metal types, cast by Harold Berliner. The book is bound in a built-in groove case in a dos-a-dos style binding. 4" x 6", 56 pages with two illustrated fold-outs.
The six linoleum prints are also available as a set of prints in a handmade portfolio. The prints are only available as a set with the book. Edition of 15 sets of prints.
Edition of 50 books, signed.
$250.00 (book only)
$385.00 (book and portfolio set)
