PRE-ORDER Vagrants & Uncommon Visitors by A. Kendra Greene

Release date 8/1/2017. Expected ship date 8/10/2017.

Made in a limited edition of 100 letterpress printed covers.

Vagrants and Uncommon Visitors traces the origins, impact, and significance of a bird collection turned museum on the shores of Iceland’s Lake Mývatn. The lake supports a eutrophic ecology that, among other things, gives life to an all-but-complete collection of Icelandic birds. The birds, or maybe their collection, give purpose to Sigurgeir, a native son who has been sighting birds and gathering eggs on the lakeside family farm since childhood. When Sigurgeir is killed in an accident on the lake, his family begins a decade-long struggle to make a museum. In this gorgeously illustrated, long-form lyric essay, Vagrants and Uncommon Visitors concerns itself with family, gender, and memorials as it examines the grief, natural history, and accomplishment of Sigurgeir’s Bird Museum.

A. Kendra Greene began her museum career adhering text to the wall: one vinyl letter at a time. The University of Iowa gave her an MFA in Nonfiction and the opportunity to costume a giant ground sloth in its Museum of Natural History. She’s been a Fulbright Grantee, Jacob K. Javits Fellow, and most recently Visiting Artist at the Dallas Museum of Art’s Center for Creative Connections. Her zines appear in the White Rock Zine Machine for 25 cents a pop.
