Altered book housing collaged basswood tiles and cut-down printing plates. “I liked this confident, expansive title, and imagined the book as a set of urban building blocks. Fragmented and movable, the tiles and blocks evoke the built elements and history of cities.” Snippets of text are from the original book, six lectures on pastoral theology delivered in 1895.
