The Mancos Times Tribune
OF THE TIMES
Letterpress and risograph with silkscreen softcover, 10 in. x 8 in., edition 30, 2016-17
OF THE TIMES utilizes the archive—as a construction and as a recursive vehicle—by framing and reframing the history of the Mancos Times Tribune currently housed in the Mancos Common Press. Through reproducing letterpress cuts from the Tribune while documenting the then-current site, the book compresses time through analog and digital media. Utilizing metaphor and ephemera, THE TIMES foregrounds history as an interpretation—rough approximations for a time, a place, a public.
