Cause and Effect

This is an editioned artists’ book about how racial identity is formed through geography and history. It is an autobiographical story about the connections between a race riot in my hometown, my upbringing and my racial awareness. Cause and Effect is a drum leaf binding in an edition of 55. The content is letterpress printed on handmade paper with photopolymer plates. The imagery in the book consists of printed trompe-l’oeilstyle newspaper and microfilm clippings, which are reproductions of the sources I learned from.

16 pages, 5.75″x 8.25″ (closed), 2009
