Easthampton Illustrated was an editioned set of handmade art-books produced by the artist as part of the project New City
The title, ‘Easthampton Illustrated’, comes from a portfolio of prints published in the early 20th century. By appropriating the historical title I intend to update and expand on the recorded image of the city. These new books consist of images, text, and archival reproductions from my larger project, New City, which documents and explores contemporary and historical narratives in Easthampton, Mass. By simultaneously presenting historical and contemporary images, stories, and objects, the work makes connections between people and places, over time.
Hand-made books in archival boxes with a curated selection of prints, found objects, text, and vintage ephemera. Each boxed set is a unique art object, from an edition of 10.
