Flip Phone Orphans

19 × 24 × 1 cm, 290g, 72 pages

There was a brief window of time between 2002 and 2007 when cellphones suddenly had tiny cameras and anybody could take photographs anywhere at anytime. Smartphones did not yet exist and ever-present social media was still years away. With no audience, who were these inconveniently-formatted, poorly-composed, garishly-exposed, low-resolution, blurry snapshots for? This collection of orphaned photos is from a more innocent time, free from the burden of documenting a curated life. Spiral-bound paperback. Published by Tome Press in an edition of 50.

23 × 30.5 × 0.5 cm, 72g, 16 pages

A makeready sheet tests color and ink coverage when offset printing. These are often printed on recycled scrap paper, resulting in surprising juxtapositions as different books print upon one another. This salvaged makeready overlays Chinese paintings onto Dutch etchings. Facsimile paperback that unfolds into a poster. Published by Tome Press in an edition of 50.

The oubliette — or in German, das Angstloch ("fear hole") — has terrified my imagination since I witnessed one on a tour of a medieval castle's dungeon when I was young.

Cloth hardcover tunnel book with magnetic flaps. Published by Tome Press.
