Ink jet on onion skin paper with original architectural pencil drawings, 22 cm, 28p, relief printed mylar cover, side stab binding, wood, and plexiglass case. The pencil drawings were done in 1990 by Andrew E. Graef, an architect in Summit, New Jersey for a house built in Morristown, New Jersey, the consummate suburban community.

Last available copy (#50/50 from the first edition) with engraved slip case and plexiglass covers by Sophia Kramer.

A collaboration of Marshall Weber and Christopher Wilde. Text by Weber, typography by Wilde.

House of Ghosts uses physical and metaphorical architectural structures to illustrate the interior emotional landscape of psychic exile and repatriation within one’s own body, psyche, and home. It is an exemplary Booklyn publication in that it aesthetically integrates book structure and content into a resonant composition by combining traditional and digital media. 

Second edition: 2002, 8 x 8 3/4 inches, edition of 35, black and white Epsom ink jet. printing. The master pages of edition one are overprinted onto blueprints of the Manhattan water treatment plant. The text is matched and printed backward on every verso page giving the illusion of transparency to the pages. With a relief printed Mylar cover and Japanese stab binding.
