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:
