Buckshot gathers together a stack of handmade cotton paper that has been damaged with shotgun blasts of birdshot and buckshot in the forests of Hale County, Alabama. Materials scavenged in the woods—flowers, branches, fruit—were placed in front of the paper and shot to stain the pages with color.

The pile of punctured paper comes housed in a paper box. The title on the box is letterpress printed with wood type; the colophon and photograph on the backside of the box are digitally printed with archival inks.
