Rear Window
By Pamela Olson
Iowa City, Iowa: Particle Press, 2006. Edition of 20.

4.125 x 6.125"; 6 pages. Double-sided accordion. Text hand set using Gill Sans, Bank Gothic, and Alternate Gothic type. Printed on Somerset Satin. Linocuts by Pamela Olson.

Four views from Olson's apartment window are presented as a foldout postcard book. The postcard format on the verso describes the view: St. Volodymyr Cathedral; utility pole and tangled wires; brick buildings; rattling trees. Not quite the views from Hitchcock's Rear Window where people's lives dominate the photographer voyeur, but an graphic glimpse into quieter backyards.
