I Want a Crayfish’s Heart began as a simple idea: if my heart was broken, and I could choose from a catalog of replacements from different creatures, what would I choose? Which heart would be strong enough to withstand another crushing blow? The narrative explores the hearts of a fish, a horse, and an octopus, among others. The above spread features the tortoise and reads, “I want a tortoise’s heart, so I can take my time with you.” Printed on Ingres paper, this pamphlet is 16 pages, a sewn softcover. Images are printed using photopolymer plates. Size is 5″ x 6″. Edition of 35. $25.
