DESCRIPTION

 

 

 

The Mayor of Palookaville

A selection of hand-printed, hand-bound books by David Johnson, a mid-career artist from Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. Johnson’s tools are simple and direct: etching, relief printing and letterpress. His observations are not: perceptive, shrewd, satirical and compassionate views of the people around him and the quotidian spaces they inhabit.
