The Chronicle Times: news delivery systems

paper, ink

22 x 12.5

edition size: 7

© 2012


The Chronicle Times is a newspaper artist’s book printed from 8 linocuts. Two signatures are folded together as a newspaper. Changes in our news delivery systems are suggested in some of the articles and some invented headlines. Hand-carved rubber stamps show a few highlights of this history. The technique references the earliest form of book printing, images and text carved on the same block.

Mary V. Marsh’s work looks at daily life activities, the quotidian moments and their patterns to think about the intersection of media, consumption and personal habits. Making art and working in libraries in the Bay Area since 1982, she received an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 1992. She makes unique and small edition artist books under Quite Contrary Press in Oakland. Currently an Artist in Resident at Kala Art Institute.
