  • Art book feel, with french flaps, unique trim size, and distinctive branding across the series.
  • A personal, artistic mediation on Aisha’s experience as one of the only Black women in a Republican-dominated area during the Trump presidency that sits thoughtfully adjacent to conversations around the problem of over-policing BIPOC individuals in outdoor spaces.
  • Deeply interdisciplinary: brings dozens of painters, philosophers, musicians, writers, performers, travelers into conversation with each other.
  • Riveting, sparkling book-length essay that’s easy to read in one sitting.
  • Dreaming of Ramadi in Detroit won the 2018 Firecracker Award for Creative Nonfiction and picked up praise from Kiese Laymon, Maggie Nelson, and Margo Jefferson.
