This Piece of Earth: Words and Images from Tumamoc Hill

This Piece of Earth - cover

Tumamoc: People and Habitats published its first book in 2014. This Piece of Earth, a collaboration between the POG poetry group and Tumamoc artists, is a showcase for some of the recent environmental art and writing projects created on-site at Tumamoc Hill. It is now available.

In keeping with the working philosophy that has evolved on Tumamoc, all of the work was completed (mostly) while on-location, within the 860-acre boundaries of the Tumamoc Landmark. Tumamoc Hill was the laboratory for these paintings and writings.

We cut no corners on printing and production quality. The 48-page soft-cover book is smythe-sewn for maximum life of the binding and ease of handling.

There is also a set of ten post cards featuring artwork selected from This Piece of Earth, packaged as a companion to the book.

You can own your own copy and also support Tumamoc Hill right here on this page. Retail price is 20.00 plus tax, and shipping, if desired. Profits from sales will benefit Tumamoc Hill.
