About I created Acquainted with the Night as my final project for my typography class. When I discovered the Robert Frost poem, I immediately related it to the places that people go when they feel depressed; thus, I dedicated the book to those places. I photographed my friends in their favorite safe spaces and created shock value within the book by having them quietly disappear. This edition of eleven books is entirely handmade; the type is letterpressed, and the books are bound in a two-signature bind.
