Power Trip.

(Maryatt, Kitty, et. al.) (illus.)

Claremont, CA: Scripps College Press, 2015. Square small octavo. Unpaginated. One of 102 copies. Created by the students in the fall 2015 Typography class at Scripps College, the book anthologizes narratives of cars, car culture, and the political and social power cars have and represent. The students' sections converse with one another, ranging brilliantly from accounts of the personal freedom driving affords (or does not, if denied to a woman or a person of low income); to examples of how cars lend the illusion of invincibility to the powerful, with specific mentions of Hitler, the Pope, and the President of the United States; to how, in any instance, cars implicate each driver in Earth's slow march toward a cataclysmic climate. Accordion-fold, with eight separate contributions from the student-artists inserted at regular intervals. Each contribution is printed on distinctly colored metallic Stardream paper-pink, teal, lavender, and crimson among them-and features unique illustrations and design elements, such as fold-outs, unregimented typography, and clever cuts and folds. Bound with metallic threads into decorative aluminum covers, sanded and softened at the corners. A delightfully polished and diverse student work. Fine. Prospectus laid in. Item #30676
