This Small Plates book offers a political perspective of unity and resilience of spirit. The book draws relationships between ancient metaphors for cultural connection (nets / labyrinths), traditional book design and experimental typography. This project was inspired by Howard Zinn's Artists in Times of War, and the work of bay area artists Allison Smith & Susan O'Malley.
