Each volume of The Little Deaths features original artwork done exclusively for that book. Each artist was given a story/essay and invited to interpret the text as she or he saw fit. There has so far been no arguing. But there has been a lot of trading ideas, sending images back and forth, editing copy, and debating colors and fonts. In other words, these books really are collaborations.
