For Sale at Arcades Project: McCarney’s Visualbooks

Scott McCarney makes books that use words only if necessary. McCarney is based in Rochester and received a Saltonstall Artist Grant in 2000. He has been making artists books for thirty years and will be selling a variety of titles, including Far Horizons and VARIOUS FIRES AND MLK.

(Above) “VARIOUS FIRES AND MLK” subverts Ed Ruscha’s 1964 book “Various Small Fires and Milk” to create a new narrative on fire, the Civil Rights Movement, and ideas of place and time. Read More

(Below) “Far Horizons” is named after the quilt pattern, which weaves together landscapes. Read More
