Fantastic Jamestown


Inspired by the incredible book collaborations of Carolyn Jones, Dorothy Swendeman, Terri Tinkham, and Vikki Young (Buttonwillow Studio), Janet Cooper and I (aka The Girls in the Attic) set out to create a book that would celebrate our beloved island, Jamestown RI.

The book structure is formed by a series of connected envelopes, one for each month of the year, holding illustrated cards and monthly calendars. “Fantastic” has multiple definitions: “extraordinarily good or attractive” and “fanciful, whimsical or surreal.” Our illustrations reflect some of each meaning, as we explore the many features of island life and history.

Fantastic Jamestown will be available for purchase in early December 2016.
