Six Endings and Some Beginnings
A limited edition of forty-two handmade artist books responding to the environmental crisis.
Working from fears surrounding the current climate change crisis and influenced by ancient tales of
the destruction of the world by the elements, the book contains three stories by each author inspired by different ancient myths,
as well as three illustrations by Rachel TonThat, two photographs from
TonThat’s The Sensual World series, and two booklets within the book with the original myths for
reference. In keeping with the theme of historical and cross-cultural dialogue around the elements,
artists from the 19th and 20th centuries are also featured in the book including Édouard Riou, Jules Férat,
Katsushika Hokusai, and Utagawa Kuniyoshi.
