New Artist's Book: The Garden

Published by Space Sisters Press

Anne Sherwood Pundyk's The Garden presents a series of emotionally evocative abstract images with eleven semi-autobiographical single-page stories centering on themes of abandonment and loss. Stylistically reminiscent of children’s literature, Pundyk’s tales hint of secrets and truths, as they trace familial ties, tragedy, art, nature and a cathartic sense of sharing. 

The Garden’s visible binding, with exposed, long, colored threads, highlights the physical joining of the book’s form, but also acts as a metaphor for the interwoven themes and motifs linking the images and written word. In particular, the idea of threads connecting family members bonded by genetics and experiences — at once tenuous and strong - capable of being broken and reestablished. 

Three stories from The Garden were published in The Hoosac Institute in 2020. 

The Garden was recently acquired by the special collections of Baylor University, Waco, TX; Denison University, Granville, OH; The New School, New York, NY; The University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT; University of California Irvine, Irvine, CA.

The Garden is available for purchase at Printed Matter, New York, NY; The Works, Newark, OH and online at Space Sisters Press:
