Jill Kambs ~Iowa


By Ellie Schiedermayer
Iowa City, Iowa: Jill Kambs, 2011. Edition of 15.

4.5 x 7.75"; 23 unnumbered pages. Handset Bembo types. Hand-processed polymer plates from photographs. Sekishu, Kitakata, and Lama Li Lokta papers. Japanese stab binding. Text from Schiedermayer's collection Meanwhile in the Skull Garden.

Jill Kambs: "Digging up roots, graves, and skulls, Underground unearths a world that is as much psychological as it is physical. In this archetypal fall story, characters must grapple with the deteriorating state of their interior selves and exterior environment. Through Schiedermayer's poetry and Kambs' imagery and book design, Underground highlights the ephemeral nature of these beings as they move between realms of the living and the dead."
