Our Worst Years

This handmade artist book chronicles my journey, and my father's journey, through our cancer treatments. The format of the book shows the parallel, yet different nature of our experiences through the use of family photos and journal style text. Each side of the book can be read independently, or the two stories can be read simultaneously. The pages are hand dyed with raspberries, and all the edges are hand tore. The images are DASS transfers, with inkjet text. The book measures about 4"x5" when closed. Each side is bound using a pamphlet stitch, and the two sides are held together with a flat-back case. This book was created in an edition of 10, constructed in the spring of 2013.
