The Positions and Situations Project: Back-to-the-Land Letters

Project website:

Since 2014, I have written letters to people who placed classified ads in 1970s magazines published as resources for back-to-the-landers. The 100 letter correspondences build a first-person history of the back-to-the-land and counterculture movements.

After 3 mos. at Bemis Center, I printed, designed, and bound the first volume of The P+S Project! It covers letters from ads 1968 to 1973 from The Modern Utopian, Alternatives Newsletter, and Mother Earth News. 132 pgs and this is only the start.... #diybookbinding #backtotheland #positionsandsituations @bemiscenter
