The Spectacular Vernacular artists book / catalogue is the first publication that summarizes and presents our solo exhibition at the Chicago Cultural Center in 2016. Along with many photos of the exhibition and the process of its creation, the book contains Agile Ciphers for Cultural Truths: a ‘hybrid essay’ by Chicago-based writer Lee Ann Norman, providing insight into the ideas, theories, and interests that influence our design practice.  It also contains a transcript from a panel discussion moderated by Zoe Ryan—John H. Bryan Chair and Curator of Architecture and Design at the Art Institute of Chicago—which took place at the Claudia Cassidy Theater at the Chicago Cultural Center in December 2016. Designed in collaboration with Michael Savona and published by Frontieriors
