Pathways is a limited edition artist’s book exploring the interior landscape of a relationship in flux. The organic shapes within the pages hint at both neurology and geography. Turning the pages echoes the experience of focusing a microscope, layer by layer on a dense, complex slide.


Letterpress printed from handset type on UV Ultra paper, cut paper shapes with pochoir, laser printing on Kimodesk film, handbound with machine stitching. Contained in a custom box with a glass lid and base.
