A meditation on the continuity of time, place, and identity, via the ruins of the Sutro Baths in San Francisco. In addition to the typography and book design, I took all the photos. Please download the book (PDF) to see the spreads in detail.

Time and Again

A vellum dust jacket obscures and reveals the cover.

Time and Again

Historic blueprints of the Sutro Baths contrast with the current state of the site. Three levels of text run throughout the book: large quotations from Ecclesiastes, my own writing on the subject, and a faint stream of T.S. Eliot's poem "The Dry Salvages."
