The WPA collaborative artists’ book project, led by book artist and printer, Jessica Peterson, is underway at the press this winter! The project pairs 12 artists and 12 writers together to create a book inspired by the WPA guide to Florida from 1935. The guide is online and also in the State Archives here in Tallahassee, which the group visited in December to view original documents and other related objects housed at the archives.
This is the third book project in our Florida series and we’re looking forward printing over the next couple months! Stay tuned for more photos and updates on this exciting collaboration!
