Superstition Highway is the result of a collaboration between Fred Rinne and Marshall Weber. It is a reflection on Weber’s travels through the American Southwest at the turn of the millennium. This book has been long out of print, but a fan of Rinne’s is relocating outside of the USA and left their small artists’ book collection at Booklyn for rehousing.
San Francisco urban folk artist, ‘journalist’ and gardener Rinne uses found materials, outsider aesthetics, and his unique painting, bookbinding, drawing, and writing style to create astounding books that expand and then explode all preconceptions of both the book arts and cultural critique. Fred documents skewed underground worlds, that few of us are either cursed or privileged to encounter, with an equally disturbing perspective.
