Towson, MD: Susannah Horrom, 2014. Paperback. Limited to 25 copies. Initialed and numbered by the artist. First trade edition. A detailed drawing of a creature that is filled with "lost things" such as keys, phones, pets, money, flashlights, time, weight, and even Atlantis. This drawing was created as part of a collaborative project sponsored by the Delaware Valley Chapter of the Guild of Bookworkers. The first printing of this map was issued exclusively for other participants in the Atlas Project 2014 in an edition of 40. From the artist's statement: "I lose things all the time. I put down a pen, sewing needle, phone, etc. - turn my head for a second - and BAM - gone. Sometimes these mysterious disappearances are due to my clepto cats, but are largely inexplicable. What is taking my eyeglasses, spare change, flashlights, postage stamps, and half of my socks? My husband? Aliens? or more likely - a giant worm-dragon-monster that lives underground and sends up tentacles to steal my stuff..." This trade edition is inkjet printed on archival paper from the original pen and ink drawing. Includes card with artist's statement and brief biography. 8.5 inches x 21 inches. PRI/123114. Fine.

Tempe, AZ: Pyracantha Press, 2014. Number 12 of 100 copies. Signed and numbered by the author. This is perhaps a unique presentation of the results of a sociological survey. The work presents the results of a study conducted in Phoenix to examine the causes and effects of urban sprawl in one of the most sprawling metropolitan areas in the country. The author and several Arizona State University students interviewed 101 residents of the city about their individual choices as they relate to suburban sprawl. The survey and its results are presented in five small volumes lettered A through E produced by the university's Pyracantha Press. Volume E describes the study's hypotheses, how it was conducted, and the conclusions that the researchers drew from their work. The four other volumes each contains a Turkish fold map that shows one of the areas of the city they surveyed with quotes from respondents about their choices on where to live. The book was conceived in collaboration with the Pyracantha Press. It is digitally printed on Mohawk Superfine paper in Stymie typeface. With brown paper board covers and grey paper backing. The five volumes are housed in a grey slipcase with title to front cover. In fine condition. Measures 6 x 6 inches in box. ARTISTB/012720. Fine.
