This product is currently sold out.
Made in collaboration with Ashley J. May of the Grassroots Morning Garden Project and special guest collaborator Nama Khalil, Thirty Sunsets and a Moon: Volume Two is a handmade book archiving sweet moments gathered in community during the autumn and winter seasons of the Wild Little Seekers Project together with reflections on home, place, and care collected through the Thirty Sunsets and a Moon Oral History Project.
From Ashley’s introduction: “Through fieldnotes, foodways, folktales, and interview excerpts, we’ve documented here the ways in which we practice possibility, holding each other in radical ritual, love, and accountability…It invites us to engage in re-remembering and asks questions such as: How were we cared for as children? How did we learn to care for others? What stories were we told about ourselves? And, what were the stories we were told about others? Through these provocations, we incite movement toward collective care and the practice of building kinship across difference in order to grow new worlds together.”
The first release of Volume Two is a limited edition of 150 books. Each 40-page book features a letterpress-printed cover with hand-painted details on rich dark brown stock. The volumes are bound by hand using naturally dyed sashiko thread colored with cutch.
