God We You Our

The images appearing in God We You Our originate from a series of photographs of cardboard protest signs that a man adorned in shackles had tied to a wrought iron fence near the Jefferson County Courthouse in Birmingham, Alabama. 

The photographs were transformed into photopolymer plates and printed on a Vandercook 3 letterpress. Oil and acrylic paints applied by hand across the plates produce the color fields. The handbound book is 16 pages, comes housed in a letterpress printed slipsleeve, and when open measures 6″ in height and 12″ in width.
