We have been big fans of Sarah Nicholls' publications since we picked them up many years ago at some of the first iterations of Printed Matter's NY Art Book Fair. Sarah doesn't make a lot of copies and rarely sells them outside of her own web site and at art book fairs. We asked for years to get her to sell her publications through our store and she wouldn't. We finally talked her into getting three titles. We invited Nicholls to contribute to a publication we made where artist publishers reflect on the waste their publishing efforts generate. You can read her contribution in it: Artist Publishers Reflect on Book Waste.
Nicholls' description of the publication:
"Elm Street is about: glaciers and what they leave behind; how trees communicate; roads that tell stories; driving as pleasure; landscaping as patriotism; and the advantages of underground fungi. Walking next to a high-traffic road is simultaneously pleasant and not. Join me on a walk down Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn. Learn the names of the trees on your street."
