FREE COUCH ARCHIVE << previous project next project >>


Since 2008, I have downloaded and collected from Craigslist more than 40,000 photographs of couches advertised for free in more than 300 cities across the United States. These photographs have been compiled in a library of 12 volumes each containing a slip case filled with 10 handmade booklets that house exactly 300 images each for a total of 3000 images per volume.



hand-made books and slipcases, custom shelf
each book ¼"x5½”x8½"
