“Harder than writing a good haiku” is a twenty page hardbound book featuring reproductions of seventeen tintype photographs created during travels through Florida, Georgia, Louisiana and Tennessee. Each image initiates its own narrative that points in a particular direction but the story’s ending is left to the viewer.
The title is letterpress printed onto handmade cotton rag cover paper, while the edition number is letterpress printed onto the cotton rag end sheet of each book. The unique tea stains on the covers are inspired by the hills of Whites Creek, Tennessee and the fight to protect the area from Nashville’s encroaching development.
The first hardbound edition is limited to thirty-five copies, of which the first twenty-five copies are available for sale. The price will increase after the sale of the first fifteen copies.
