Sara White: "Incorporating themes of community, ecology, and the self, I make books to map experience. I aim to document the interconnectedness between living beings and the environment, while examining manmade constructions and memory. The handmade book becomes a living archive: an object that can be explored, with meaning that changes through individual interaction. The use of handmade paper, letterpress printing, and hand binding gives materiality and weight to abstract ideas."

Tuscaloosa, Alabama: Southern Pests Books and Prints, 2013.
Edition of 35.

3 x 3"; 40 pages. Miniature with two foldouts. Letterpress and pochoir printed. Casebound. Numbered and initialed by the artist.

Sara White: "I adapted a story commonly told by my late grandma about her experience with a UFO sighting in New York in the sixties. I illustrated her story in a comic-style, first drawing the panels in black ink on Bristol, then formatting the images for letterpress printing. Each panel is lightly pochoir printed with gauche. The book's small size gives it an intimate feeling - the reader can carry this story around in her pocket if she pleases."
