Manual, Mixed media book

Manual is an expanded zine, a living Tumblr, an artist book, a blue plastic binder. Manual is a 240-page livejournal documenting the emotional and financial experience navigating and intervening with male desire. Manual lived and breathed for two years as a Tumblr blog know as thanxforsharing, yet now only lives on within its shiny blue binding. Contents include but are not limited to: photographs of my feet, erasures of my face, paintings in gouache, emails from prospective lovers, emails from prospective clients, excerpts from my graduate thesis, a letter from my mother, soiled undergarments, socks, poetry, journal entries, credit card statements, student loan statements, my heart, my pain, my feminism.
