Four booklets, averaging 44 pages each, 4” x 5.75” (horizontal format), digitally printed on acid free 70 lb text, hand-stitched, with an 80 lb cover jacket, in one archival slipcase. Limited edition of 26 numbered copies by The Heavy Duty Press.
The Afterthawts begins with a condensed version of THAWT (The Heavy Duty Press, 2014). In the tradition of slow media essential to THAWT, each subsequent and seasonally-themed booklet is inspired by post cards from a family vacation sent to a team of artists, with a request to work the post cards into collages and return them. Collages received were then arranged in a specific sequence, with accompanying photo documentation of the holiday. Reversing roles, a creative writer received the image sequence, and accepted the challenge to furnish text to illustrate the images.
