Fathoms - Louise Mathias

This project was a collaboration between poet Louise Mathias, myself, and photographer Josh Schaedel. The poem dealt with events in the poets life in a sort of disjointed, nonlinear and somewhat monotone way. Reading Fathoms felt like trying to recall memories of important events that were becoming more distant and fuzzy in the mind.

Our aim was to bring this feeling out in the design of the book. We created this chapbook in Archetype Press at Art Center College of Design. All text and illustrations were printed on a letterpress machine.
