David Horvitz Bookshirt
For this bookshirt, David Horvitz takes Rachel Carson's The Sea Around Us and prints the first 4 pages of the book as if the shirt were made as a book. After this small edition sells out AHOF will print the next 4 pages of the book, and so on, until the book is fully printed.
What is a bookshirt? A book that’s a shirt. Much like a fish growing legs and walking on land, so too the page must grow legs and learn to walk around. The bookshirt is an experiment in imagining a book as a shirt. How does a poem change when it follows you through your day, when you read it waking up, backwards through a mirror?
