Commissioned by the Headlands Center for the Arts, this fascinating book is a collaborative project bringing together the talents and insights of five artists. Metcalf developed his text by compiling existing material into a literary assemblage. Klett photographed the Headlands in their current state. Sultan and Mandel researched military files as well as the National Archives to create an historical portrait of the area. DeCoster, a book artist, assembled the material and designed the book. A complex project, as remarkable as it is unique and multi-layered.
