This project began as an artist book made to archive the artifacts and activities of the Royal Chicano Air Force, a Sacramento, California based arts collective that played a significant role in the chicano civil rights movement of the 1970s and 80s. My job was to take inspiration from the handmade artist book and turn it into a more elaborate hardback edition.
