Dodger Blues

500.00

A little bit humorous, a little bit bittersweet, Dodger Blues tells the story of a softball player's gender issues and the misery caused by family and friends. Each poem is named after a Dodger player. Two accordions, bound as three diamonds, with 108 stitches represent the 108 stitches on a baseball (or 216 depending on how you count it). Inside each diamond are photographs of a baseball field taken with a pinhole camera. The text was letterpress printed.

Nominated for a Pushcart Prize in 2014 and received honorable mention in Pressing Matters, a show presented by Central Coast Printmakers and San Luis Obispo Museum of Art in 2016.

Edition of 20. Letterpress and giclée.
Closed 7” x 7”, Open 10” x 38” (approximately)
