Index Mortalis

One more thing for this wave of updates... For my last project in my letterpress class I published a new book titled "Index Mortalis".


It's just a little guy at about 4" x 5.5" and inside there are no photos, just my writing about photography and how it relates to death and ghosts. The entire book is printed by letterpress, including the cover, and inside all the text is made from my own handwriting that I scanned to make photopolymer plates.


There are five copies in the first edition, excluding one artist proof. Each is signed and numbered, and each one has a little bit of unique character in its print. Also, two of the five has specially embossed end-sheets.


At this time I am not quite prepared to offer these for sale yet. I have an idea of a price that I am still deliberating on, but I also need to consider if I want to include this in my thesis exhibition this coming spring and if i want to risk needing to publish a second edition. I'm just not sure if I will have the time in the coming months, not to mention that I still need to publish an edition of my first book "Space | Time"
