The Imaginary Lives of Buster Keaton is an artist chapbook made in collaboration with JackPine Press and is co-designed by Hazel Plante. The book attempts to recreate the movie-going experience of watching a Buster Keaton silent film comedy, allowing the reader to 'edit' the text as with cutting and splicing together celluloid.
Complete with ticket, program, puzzle, and original art, this book invites the reader to touch and play, and explores the connections between the writing and film mediums.
