This collection of text fragments and collages was created from research on the Chicago World's Fair and its infamous serial killer, HH Holmes.  While much of his reputation and horrors is the stuff of tabloid sensationalism, what emerged is a study of the women he swindled and murdered and even wived, as well as a textured look at Chicago in the late 19th century.  28 pages. dancing girl press & studio.
