[fulltitle]I WAS THERE: Rumor Fable Exploit[/fulltitle]
An anthology artist book that takes the traditional art form of the hand printed book to a contemporary setting, bringing together emerging and established writers and artists.
Contributors include Naomi Shihab Nye, Rick Ridgeway, Anne Lamott, Mark Salzman, Richard Wilbur, Aracelís Girmay and a letter of ‘truth’ by Albert Einstein.
"I WAS THERE, Brittany Sanders’ anthology jewelbox of an artist’s book is a veritable wondercabinet, brimming over with daft marvels and somber delights – stories, drawings, rumors, fables, photos, dreamscapes – all of them exquisitely fashioned and sumptuously presented." -Lawrence Weschler, author and New Yorker contributor
