Sherman Levi, Various Effects of Coffee on the Body, and Rich, Deep, Bittersweet, Center for Book and Paper Arts, Columbia College, Chicago, 2013.

Various Effects of Coffee on the Body, 2013


Two funky little accordions that take coffee as their subject matter and both come from Levi's research into coffee, indeed in 2013 Levi traveled to Colombia "...to examine the relationship between Latin American coffee farmers and coffee consumers through photography, interviews and research." The images in both accordions of coffee laborers, were found in Chicago area coffee houses and tasking notes from coffeereview.com.

For a 2014 interview with Sherman about his work see: Featured Artist: Levi Sherman – The Columbia Chronicle

Both accordions: 8 double-sided pages, each 2"x2", and when fully opened 1ft 4".





Rich, Deep, Bittersweet, 2013
