Super Summer

Pop-apart nesting dolls reveal a nuclear family's subconscious desires in a Midwestern narrative about on-going marital tensions, two family pets, one rabid bat and one baseball bat, and Sigmund Freud...all told from the perspective of a young boy who dreams of being published in Boys’ Life magazine.

Set of 13 nesting dolls plus three book enclosures (two letters, one book), with variable dimensions from 12 inches to .75 inches. Doll exteriors hand-painted with acrylic and India ink. Handwritten and typeset letter enclosures printed on ruled notebook paper. Miniature, pamphlet-stitched Boys’ Life magazine printed on Epson paper. Signed edition of one.
