In Cahoots Press: "The Conversation is a limited edition artist’s book, designed and printed by Macy Chadwick, about the challenges of verbal communication.

In Cahoots Press Out of Print Title:

The Topography of Home
By Macy Chadwick
San Francisco, California: In Cahoots Press, 2009. Edition of 50.

10.5 x 14"; 22 pages. Letterpress printed with pressure prints and polymer plates on Mohawk Superfine and French's Extra Blue Butcher paper. Window imagery hand-stenciled on silk tissue.

In Cahoots Press: "This book is the artist's attempted reconciliation of living in the present while longing for her remembered hometown. Letterpress printed maps convey a more emotional than geographical terrain; events and places are recorded and revisited, worried over and examined. Silk tissue apertures punctuate the pages offering the reader glimpses of previous and subsequent images. This sequential aspect of the book literally and metaphorically has the reader both seeing the past through the present and looking forward through history's gauze."
