The Work of Unforgetting: Poems from the Plague Year



Design, illustrate, print, and bind an edition of 100 chapbooks


Mark Read reached out to me about designing, illustrating, and printing a poetry chapbook titled The Work of Unforgetting. 

Inspired by the themes of longing, rememberance, and aging/coming-of-age, I chose to draw with scribbles, tracing over family photos that Mark sent me. These illustrations are small in comparison to the page, a lonely, solitary smallness.

The book was printed using a Risograph.
