INTENTION + DETAILS

Dear Black Boy is as beautiful as it is strong, each ukiyo-e inspired water color brush stroke is infused with the passion and spirituality of classic African American folk art. The intentionality of the hand is noticed – each element of every page painted is meticulously placed on the rich, velvety archival quality paper; made in America.

This heavy weight acid free paper creates a superior opacity allowing minimal show through that ensures that each painting is supported. The binding of this book is smyth sewn, ensuring durability and longevity.

The dust jacket is made of 100 lb dull text paper and features a 4-color process, which allows for full-color printing. The case cover is created by mounting linen to a 98pt board and includes a foil stamp, and a blind deboss in multiple areas.

The drama of the imaginative imagery increases with the eyes and mouths of the boys being removed in the paintings to silence them, and blind them, this intensifies the reactive emotions from the poetic words of encouragement sprinting across the pages as we imagine these Black Boys as our very own sons, nephews, brothers, and cousins as we root for them and guide them to freedom with our voices.
