First morning reading on the porch of our new 🏡 has been 💯 😍😍
A strange but intriguing little book. Piecing together the story kept me flipping pages. #blamelitsy
A beautiful and tragic piece of art, this book is something to blaze through, ponder on, then reread in a different way. Multiple ways to read this sorry told in 63 interlinked vignettes each with an accompanying photograph makes this a cross between Choose Your Own Adventure, and purposefully planned out storytelling genius. I love this book... A lot.
A lovely illustrated novella that I devoured in one sitting. The design is what makes this story work. It's about the lives of two families intersecting and the tragedy that falls on each over time. The story unfolds with short paragraphs/summaries titled by guide words with cross references under a photograph.
I think this "field guide" was well executed and odd in the best way.
Thought provoking novella that comes to life with beautiful photographic images. It can be read from front to back or in a “choose your own path” style. It was definitely helpful to read this prior to Thanksgiving 😂. Would totally recommend checking out this unique piece of fiction! Did I mention it‘s a quick read too?!
"Secrets breed rapidly. In concentration they are the host organism for Rumor."
Such a ridiculously beautiful book! And I know one of the contributing photographers (it's a small world...).
I know not everyone will enjoy this, but as an artist and writer- this is my goal. Hallberg and Danielewski, they continue to create a niche which I'm going to contribute to ASAP.
GAH! Anyone remember "Choose Your Own Adventure" books? This is like those, with adult topics and laid out like an encyclopedia. Alphabetical snippets under titles like Divorce, Love, Youth, Innocence, entangle the Harrison and Hangate families. Perspectives switch but so does chronology. I read pages both at random and in order, engaged not only by photo illustrations but also the messy life Hallberg laid on the page.
I'm a forever fan. ??
"Once highly localized in its Habits, the Home has become increasingly nomadic in the last century. It has been known to travel great distances to secure a source of the Mortgages on which it subsists."
Have I mentioned how much I love this book?? There's just something about both the tangibility that makes me so excited.
I am such a nerd ? could flip through gazing at and stroking the pages all day.
I LOVE Garth. His are exactly the kind of innovative novels I drool all over. 😍👌🏻
Afternoon reading. 🌎🗺📚
Not at all my cup of tea... Just wasn't for me :(
