Facsimile is an anthology of Shirley Jackson's short stories. She is an acclaimed mid-century American author best known for writing “The Lottery”.The publication makes use of Shirley Jackson's layered approach to storytelling, and relies on collaged xerox as a physical manifestation of her work.

I made illustrative collages, laid out the text for each story, and completed the packaging for the final product. Much of the publication was inspired by my initial finding of Jackson’s work in our dated campus library, which influenced the paper choices as well as the copier machine direction that the work takes.
