Conceptually, Medicine for a Nightmare: Part Two is a collection of thoughts and expressions to be part of a larger conversation. It contains essays, poetry, short stories, photography, and other visual art from a unique selection of 60+ characters from many walks of life, age groups, and cultural backgrounds. It's presented in a perfect-bound paperback book that comes with a 90-minute long audio companion cassette consisting of exclusive instrumental music from 17 different artists, housed in a handmade resealable paper box. The core of this project is to embrace emotions and impermanence, with the focus on this volume being "what brings one to see another day".
The book was made from FSC and Rainforest Alliance certified sustainably forested paper. It’s perfect bound and the cover has a matte finish. First edition of 400 copies. It was made in Michigan by the good people at the woman-owned print house, McNaughton & Gunn.
