Conceptually, Medicine for a Nightmare: Part One 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 43 characters from many walks of life, age groups, and cultural backgrounds. It's presented in a perfect-bound paperback book that comes with a 2-hour long audio companion compilation consisting of mostly exclusive instrumental music from 23 different artists. The core of this project is to embrace emotions and impermanence.
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.
