Fashion Illustrations by D. ‘Jame Public Collectors “These drawings by a fashion illustrator or designer named D. ‘Jame come from the collection of Michael Thomas, an artist based in Chicago. Thomas found the drawings at a thrift store in Chicago, located on Broadway Avenue near Devon. He writes: “They were priced at $5 per drawing. I could only afford one and was unable to decide. The owner of the store said he was tired of having them around and I could buy them all for $20. There are thirty-three drawings. He said there had been more, but they had been sold.” The drawings are dated from 1970-77.
The store owner purchased the drawings as part of a lot at an estate sale in Northern Indiana. No other information about D. ’Jame is known.
This booklet was produced for the exhibition “Archival Impulse” at University of Illinois at Chicago, which includes all of D.’Jame’s drawings from Michael’s collection, as well as additional collections on loan from other Public Collectors participants.”
Public Phenomena: Informal Modifications of Shared Spaces Temporary Services
“Public Phenomena took ten years to complete and only 1,750 copies were printed by Half Letter Press. The book is an amazing survey of handmade “modifications and inventions” that people create in public space. There’s over 150 pages of photographs and essays in the book that cover a wide range of themes including roadside memorials, makeshift barriers, handmade basketball hoops, plant protectors and more. Sara and I found the book to be absolutely fascinating and incredibly life affirming and inspiring.
