Continuing to publish my series on issuu and MagCloud, here is the newest release which can be read online and downloaded for free. If you purchase a printed copy from MagCloud, I donate all the profit to the Tenement Museum in New York City, which preserves the history of the generations of newcomers who settled in and built lives on the Lower East Side, America's iconic immigrant neighborhood.
"letter to earl" 8 x 8 inch, 24 page, saddle stitched book

What's nice about looking at the publication is that you get to see the whole series together and it includes the complete letter from Ida that the work is based on.

This is the introduction:
Patricia Sahertian bought a stack of forgotten letters. They were written to a soldier, Earl J. Pontius, in 1943 by his mother, Ida. After reading them, one in particular stood out because it referenced so many people from back home in Lewisburg, Ohio. From Sahertian’s collection of random old photos she created a casting call, selecting people to play the characters that she imagined to be the folks from Earl’s hometown.
When you get a chance take a look and let me know what you think.
