A 19-2 View depicts observations of the fifteen balconies overlooked from Scarlett's apartment in the east of Amsterdam. After a request to take a photograph and meet a neighbour went by without a single reply, she made up stories of the inhabitants and their surroundings: the things they might have told her had they accepted her offer.
Through modular circles cut into the pages, readers get a glimpse of each balcony, beginning with all fifteen illustrations on the first page. Each subsequent page is dedicated to one balcony and its narrative.
A 19-2 View is letterpress printed from photopolymer plates with navy ink on Mohawk Superfine 100 Text paper and is perfect bound.
