Brea-06_Books side by side


The back and front covers of “Brea.” Photo courtesy of the artist.

Two copies of the book lie side by side and flat against a wood background. The copy on the left shows the back cover, an ink drawing of a young girl from above, from her head to her abdomen and then fading into the background. She wears a button-up shirt and sunglasses, the left lens of which is cracked. Her left eye is partially visible. At the bottom of the back cover are logos for the Hyde Park Art Center, the City of Chicago, and the Chicago Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events. The copy on the right shows the front cover, which is an ink illustration of a young boy in close-up, straight-on, showing his face, chest, and parts of his arms. He wears a long-sleeved shirt and his hands are flipped upside-down over his eyes to form goggles, of sorts, with each thumb and forefinger. Courtesy of the artist.
