Sam Garriott Antonacci Out of Print Title:  
Point of Origin
By Sam Garriott Antonacci
Seattle, Washington: Sam Garriott Antonacci, 1999. One-of-a-Kind.

2.875 x 3 x .875" miniature tunnel book built into a clamshell box. Title on front in ink. Prismacolor and ink on parchment paper.

Sam Garriott Antonacci: "I see many of my books as histories or small personal documents of people, places, or objects. Point of Origin is a visual telling in a tiny tunnel book form of my family's farm in the Ohio River valley where I spent my childhood and youth. This farm has been in my family for seven generations, and the book references things that were important in that rural life: plants, a mailbox and tractor, and all the autumn colors that I miss now that I live in the Pacific Northwest."
