“The Amateur Astronomer” first appeared as a serial article in Colpa Press's La Gazzetta, a silkscreened monthly broadside made available at the newsstand kiosk on Market and 6th Streets (March 15 – Sept 15, 2012). “Amateur Astronomer” epistolary novelette compiles those articles with diagrammatic illustrations as a limited print run of 50 chapbooks. Booklets were designed, printed and published by Sabina Nieto and Carissa Potter in San Francisco, California, 2012.
A gallery installation accompanies this book release. Opening reception promises books for sale, a sip of Carissa's Lonely Stargazer elixir and simple sextant activity station.
Installation continues through December 2.
