Contemporary Prayers 2021 by Hannah Burr
A book by artist Hannah Burr
This artist's book of blunt prayers to nothing-in-particular is the third in the series, published by Simon and Schuster's Tiller press! It arrived in March of 2021. This book has the very best aspects of the two that came before, with an expanded vocabulary of vivid ink and brush abstraction standing in for whatever or whomever you might pray to, and new prayers for our brave, new, post-Covid 19 world: uncertainty, unfamiliarity, confusion and reorienting are all emphasized.
This book is the same shape and size as the first two, and has the same tone and sensibilities as the first Contemporary Prayers to * [whatever works] It's a volume 2 with all new content.
6.5 x 5.5”
