Summary
This book showcases the exquisite collage work of internationally acclaimed artist Lorna Simpson. Combining vintage advertising images of Black women and men with colorful ink washes, striking geological formations, and dreamy skyscapes, Simpson creates fantastical coiffures that pay homage to the beauty of Black hair. A lyrical introduction by eminent poet Elizabeth Alexander rounds out this volume
