This title is offered as a special-order item. Publisher's description: Dear God is the second major work in a trilogy about America made by artist Amit Desai, during his ten years on the road. Dear God began in 2005, after one of the deadliest storms in the history of the United States, Hurricane Katrina... Amit was down in New Orleans at the time working on his first body of work America Sutra (Worldwide 157643). It was there in a flooded church that Amit found the first collection of photographs in the Dear God series. From these photographs he made Paper Trail... This body of work was made during a period of intense spiritual crisis in the artist's life and each book in Dear God represents a journey from the darkness to the light. The techniques used by Amit to bring his words and the images he found together was part of an experimental process he had developed over many years of making art out of collected scraps and writing in his journals which he called Dumpster Diaries. This project was completed in 2012 and was produced and published by Stephen Cheng. This boxed set of Dear God was designed with the care and craftsmanship of European medieval illuminated manuscripts, stamped and bound in black leather with gilt edging and produced by the German printing firm Karl Grammlich GmbH. The seven Dear God books are embedded in an outsized folio with cut out forms in which the odd-sized books rest like pieces in a puzzle.
