THE STATES
poems by Craig Foltz, book concept/design by Ellie Ga

In this collectable edition of six accordion-fold postcard-style books, Craig Foltz's poems traverse the cultural landscape of the United States. The poems are accompanied by a photograph of each state's sky–as diverse as the states which make up this giant country. The photographs were contributed by 51 amateur and professional photographers from around the country. The pages are perforated so that the poems can be sent, like balloons, through the mail.

six two-color, accordion-folded books. 3x5 in. edition of 500.
