"Faces & Places of Tompkins Ave"
Coil-bound book with laser cut cover
9 x 9 inches. 142 pages.

This book was commissioned by Arts & Letters 305 United for their 2024 second-grade cohort. 

Each student picked one of eight businesses on Tompkins Ave (a commercial corridor close to the school), interviewed the owner, and wrote an article about it. They also collaborated to create model replicas of each business. 

This book collects the work of all the second-graders. It features a laser cut cover, fold out map and index page, as well as color coded sections for each business.
