    Overview

    Summary
    This is the artist's response to her discovery in 2009 of a bundle of more than 100 letters written in German by her grandparents between 1939 and 1941. The letters were sent from Riga, Latvia, to their children, the artist's mother and uncle, who had been sent from Leipzig, Germany, to safety in Memphis, Tennessee. They reveal the story of her grandparents' journey from Leipzig to Riga before their deaths in 1941. The letters were then "hidden in plain sight" in her family's attic for almost 70 years. After the letters were translated into English, the author discovered part of her family's history and was inspired to record her grandparents' lives and to map their journey.

The foldouts are lithographs printed on Thai mulberry and Chinese paper bought in Shanghai in 2015. The maps were made using hand-cut stencils which were then pressure printed on a Vandercook press at emdash, and the text, set in Berthold Walbaum type, was printed from polymer plates. The text papers are Zerkall and Legion's UV/Ultra II. The metal envelopes were fabricated at Engraphix in St Louis ...There are 27 books in this edition"--Colophon.
