"10 years ago. It's there. It's still there. It's just there." — Kirk Washington
Imagine receiving a box, overflowing with what looks like junk from a thrift store. Imagine being shown a podcast about Hurricane Katrina, documenting its aftermath and those affected. Imagine then, being told that what you thought at first was junk, was actually a box of memories and artifacts salvaged from the hurricane. This is the story I illustrated through the books I designed and bound - a real story, told by real people. It's a narrative that deserves to live on, just like the memories of those whose lives were taken away by the hurricane.
