Abstract (English)

Pike’s artist's book traces the genealogy of the female side of her family through the use of photos, clippings, drawings, facsimiles of texts, and letters written by different individuals (beginning with her great great great grandmother and finishing with her neice). The book celebrates the lives of women and claims a space for them in history.
