The High Road, 2011

The High Road is letterpress printed on handmade denim paper using a combination of reduction linoleum blocks and photopolymer plates. It was inspired by the Blue Ridge Parkway, which traces the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia and North Carolina. My grandfather worked for FDR's Civil Conservation Corps in the 1930s. The front pamphlet describes my grandfather's history with CCC. The accordion contains a map of the parkway with milepost markers that are significant to my family's history on the parkway. The markers are associated with the memories written by members of my family that are contained in the back pamphlet.

Dimensions: Closed: 5 x 5.5 x 0.5, Open: 5 x 36 x 5.5 inches; Closed: 12.5 x 14 x 1.5, Open: 12.5 x 91.5 x 14 centimeters
