There goes the neighborhood by Elsi Vassdal Ellis( Book )

3 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 10 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Artists statement: A sound bite by Jacques Chirac started the juices flowing for There Goes the Neighborhood. "Our house is burning down and we're blind to it ... the earth and human kind are in danger and we are all responsible." The resulting book presents six neighborhoods examining the decline of biodiversity, the environment and the quality of our lives as we know it. Image and word bites illuminate the problems of population growth, ocean acidity and overfishing, deforestation, species extinction, disease, and climate change. Copyright free 19th century engravings have been worked together in Photoshop to tell today's stories and in a way, connect today's problems with many of the same ones faced by those living when these engravings were originally created. Accompanying the neighborhoods are mini treatises adding specifics to the greater than a thousand word images. The titles are patterned after 19th century book titling practices
Girt, Retha and me : Stephen City, Virginia, May 8-24, 1925 by Elsi Vassdal Ellis( Book )

1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Inspired by my grandmother-in-law's life experiences, I have started a series of books examining the lives of farming families and farming practices during her lifetime, drawing upon biographical as well as historical accounts ... This first book draws upon the anonymous entries in one of three journals discovered in the Red School House Antiques shop outside Oakland, Maryland. The portion of the 1925 diary featured here paints a picture of the daily small scale local farming life of the 1920s"--Artist's statement at the 23 Sandy Gallery website, viewed on February 9, 2018
Alice's evidence : once upon a time in Wonderland by Elsi Vassdal Ellis( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When my university library switched from the 80-column card system known as ALICE to the scanned bar codes, these cards became obsolete. There was no thought given to preserving some of the evidence of this former system. Library staff recycle these obsolete Automated Library Information Circulation Equipment cards when a book is mended. I began collecting these beautiful and informative artifacts that noted the 'popularity' of a book, with multiple due date stamps and cancellations to no marks whatsoever. I also wanted to preserve their place in history and when I had collected enough, present them in the form of that referenced their former function while playing on the system's acronym. This book is an alternative telling of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland"--Abecedarian Gallery website, October 10, 2017
When the veil becomes the apron by Elsi Vassdal Ellis( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"There were two sources of inspiration for When the veil becomes the apron: a 1930s Hotpoint electric cookbook for content and a facsimile of a Victorian children's pop-up book (A day in the zoo) for structure. My impressions of life in the 1930s changed after researching this decade through Good housekeeping. It was not yet a fully consumer culture. There were hints at emerging women's emancipation. The narrative is drawn from somewhat conflicting articles and advertisements resulting in Happy Hotpoint's helpful hints of six kitchen recommendations for a successful marriage. The introduction of so-called labor-saving devices did not, in fact, reduce the time required to attend to housewife duties. As the equipment reduced time to do some chores, the time was then filled with tackling the increasing complexities of the chores, including cookery with more recipes using a greater variety of ingredients. Facsimiles of related ephemera sit on the back side of the panels."--Artist's statement
