4 volumes : all illustrations A set of four spiral bound square volumes. Book One published in 2017. Book Two, Book Three and Book Four published in 2018. Digitally press printed books. "Edition of 50"--The artist's website "'What doesn't kill you will likely try again' is a four-part book that continues my exploration into the repetition of form across disparate elements. Tracking and recording the light throughout the year in my home and studio encouraged me to slow down and be present in my surroundings. Patience was rewarded with moments of connection and balance, uncommon within the daily routine of life. The individual books act as thoughts and the set as a conversation and record the illuminated moments that align with existing or constructed architecture."--Melani McWhorter's webpage Risograph printed covers, grey lines on black paper. Library has copy no. 36, signed by the artist.
