Book 1, 2010-2011
I curated Book 1 while I was still in high school, studying for my senior AP tests in 2010. This book is originally an AP History study guide. To turn the tables and "school it" myself, I put my own subjectivity over its pages. Publishing a book of my art, writing, and collages has always been a dream of mine, but I didn’t have the funds or know-how to professionally execute this, so I made my own.
Book 2, 2011-2012
My first year at Bard, I showed many people Book 1 and felt validated enough by their positive response to make a sequel. I like to think of Book 2 as the collegiate version of Book 1, but even after a comprehensive side-by-side analysis of each item, can you even tell there’s been a personal evolution?
