Guess what showed up today?

So … the book we created from our research project, How to Forget the Border Completely, finally showed up!!!

I’m really happy with how it looks and I can’t wait to have some time to read through it all. After this week’s activities, we should plan some kind of launch for the book.

Tom’s renderings of our cross-border portals.

Fishy the fish, the mascot for our Canada Border Services Agency Consultancy.

Dan’s inventions for crossing border walls.

1,000 pedestrian walkways across the Detroit River.

Sending a message.

BFF Necklaces, to back up a proposal for a cross-border public sculpture.

Some essays.

Ro’s project, layering cities.

More from the CBSA’s consultancy — wittiness provided by Josh.

Some renderings to back up that proposal — Sara likes clowns.

And, the imagewrap cover. All the above is just a sampling of everything in there. It’s been an incredible research project, giving us a lot of material to drive further projects. I’m anxious to get a copy for everyone, just a few adjustments to be made for the next round of prints (hopefully, Blurb can do that).

This particular version of the book is a bit pricey, with the image wrap hardcover and higher quality paper, it’s around $80. But, we’ll be able to get some copies that are a lot less expensive. If you want a copy, let us know, we’ll post a link.

How to Forget the Border Completely is generously supported by the Ontario Arts Council.
