Artists' book by Karol Shewmaker & Brandon Graham. ROOM, a combination FLAT Production and JAB Book was conceived by Karol Shewmaker, who was soon joined by Brandon Graham in carrying on the project. A group of writers and artists was invited to spend the afternoon and early evening at a rented room of the O-MI motel --a down-at-the-heels motel in Chicago -- after which they would respond with work inspired by that visit. From JAB 33.
"The O-MI Motel is a one-star motor court that, at the time of this publication, was still standing on North Lincoln Avenue in Chicago, IL. The images in this publication were gathered from the participants who ventured to room #7 at the motel. The text pieces were generated by the writers and artists who were inspired by this particular space."--Colophon.
The book was included in the Journal of Artists' Books no 33.
"Some of the good life" is in an envelope affixed to one of the pages.
