This accordion style artist’s book takes the reader on a journey with the artist and her family chronicling their annual journey from Willow Grove, PA to their vacation home in Avalon, NJ. It features 20 duotone photographs, captured with a Holga camera, by Davis of “roadside America” coupled with a narrative of her childhood memories about the places portrayed in the images.

Offset printed in the Borowsky Center for Publication Arts at The University of the Arts in Philadelphia, the book measures 5 1/2” x 5 3/4” folded and extends to 11 1/2 feet long. The durable Tyvek cover is a reproduction of the 1960s map that follows the journey. It can be released to display the book fully open.
