new from above/ground press: BIRDS I RECALL, by Sarah Mangold

Sarah Mangold

In the Department of Birds we welcome the possible. Accuracy is more-or-less proposition. Low down and close up. An architect in need of work. During the next five years Mrs. Morrill painted African landscapes never seen. To create a message for the future. To prepare for her coming tasks.
