Peripheral Vision is an investigation of the mental process. From the starting point of a dream, the narrator follows mental pathways that lead through memories of childhood, meditations on intimacy, mini ghost stories and to the very meaning of language and art. Reminiscent of “choose your own adventure” stories, the paths the reader can take through the semi-transparent vellum paper are seemingly endless.

50 pages, laser printed on vellum with letterpress covers. Hand-bound in Japanese stab stitch. 10″x8″
Edition of 50.
