From There to Here
From There to Here is a collaboration between four artists whose talents and lives intersect at Otis College of Art and Design, in conjunction with the exhibition at Ben Maltz Gallery,
Binding Desire: Unfolding Artist's Books.
The flag book structure presented the perfect form to incorporate four journeys to the college in both a literal storytelling manner as well as a larger historical perspective that brought the collaborators together. The book, From There to Here is a letterpress printed and hand-bound. The edition size is 20. The book dimensions are 10.5" x 6.125" x 1".
The book contains the artists’ journey in the codex of the book, with a map of Los Angeles as the flag image, and the back of the spine which contains the colophon, method, means, and biographical information of the artists:
Jennifer Graves, Janet Kupchick, Leslie Ross-Robertson, and Jamie Russom.
Included in special collection libraries across the country, and in three exhibitions:
Book as Art Flight Edition, Decatur Arts Alliance, Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport, October 2018—October 2019,
Book as Art Expanding the Limits, Decatur Arts Alliance, 2014, and
Bookworks 2014, 15th Triennial Pacific Center for the Book Arts Member Show, San Francisco Main Library, 2014.
