Fall Line Press’ Holiday Book Fair at APG on Saturday, Nov. 23, 1-4pm

Fall Line Press is pleased to announce its first Fall Line Folio this November featuring the work of Atlanta photographer Anderson Scott. The portfolio will be produced in a limited edition of twenty and contains eight, high quality 12x17 color prints from the Nuwaubia project. Scott’s work documents the remains of the Nuwaubian cult compound active in Putnam County, Georgia during the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. The Fall Line Folio will be available for purchase at our Holiday Book Fair on Saturday, November 23rd from 1 to 4 at the TULA Arts Center (75 Bennett Street, Suite B-1, Atlanta, GA 30309). The Fall Line Folio is a new addition to the offerings of Fall Line Press. Each one will include a letterpress case to house the images, a letterpress colophon, a piece of writing about the images, and a selection of prints from the chosen project. The folios are a different way for audiences to engage with photographs. Anderson Scott visited the compound, dubbed Tama-Re, shortly before it was destroyed capturing some of last remaining evidence of the unusual local. Scott’s images contain the strange juxtapositions of obscure Egyptian aesthetics and modern habitation. A small child’s scooter rests peacefully in front of a looming pyramid and an old, tattered couch sits to the side of an elaborate, colorful facade. The real sense that Tama-Re existed out of place in Putnam County presents itself in each image but a lingering feeling that what happened there was beyond anti-establishment sentiments casts a shadow over the work as a whole.
