i had been meaning to print this for so many years it's not even funny. the original copy of this text is written on a sad falling apart piece of pink paper advertising chinese new year, and it started as a joke making fun of the crew change. there were five of us, two dogs and there was a lot of vodka and cisco involved. and we were stuck in memphis. if you know the crew change it might be funny, if you know rusty i don't need to say anymore. i printed this for people who knew rusty to have, and as a way to make my own little shrine for him.
memphis is 4"x5.5" printed by letter press using photopolymer plates, wood and lead type, with a small little silk screened heart.
edition of 90

I've felt stuck in a strange place of not wanting to write about myself after the first issue, and instead find ways to create books and zines with images that can be read anyway the viewer wants. One side is a map and the other a landscape that moves from one coast across to the other. If it wasn't for the landmarks I feel as if I could move through the landscape and always feel as if I'm in the same place.

I was in North Carolina when I found out my boyfriend died, and as I made my way back to NY and back to Providence and back to NY for school, I felt frozen in a moment. Watching everything around me move and not sure if what I was seeing or feeling was real. The nights were the worst. So I started writing everything down to try and get it out of my head and I put together the first issue of Dirty Love.
