what endures

What Endures is the 2017 edition in the Artist’s Publication Series from Ringling College of Art and Design. The book was conceived, written, and designed by Jessica Peterson. The content was produced, printed and bound by students in the Collaboratory: Artists’ Publication class at Ringling College.

The narrative considers the history of Sarasota, Florida in the early 1820’s, when it was a haven for enslaved people who had escaped from bondage, as well as Indigenous Americans who escaped from Andrew Jackson’s Trail of Tears.
