Event Details

The Brick House is an illuminated book about a house where people go to dream. It is a book driven not by character, but instead formed around place and through specific dreams. In the book, the dreams contend with themes of love and loneliness and environmental degradation and sex and beauty and loss, but in the strange, elemental language which dreams allow for. Marcom’s desire to illuminate the book came in part because of her appreciation of William Blake’s work, and was also inspired by a love of Armenian illuminated manuscripts. She commissioned writer and artist, Fowzia Karimi, to do ten original black and white drawings for the book.
