resting reader (2022)

resting reader is a book of texts and images assembled from source material found on the shelves of the Queer.Archive.Work library. All pages were scanned directly into the risograph, printed in an unlimited edition, and bound on the Horizon BQ-140 perfect binder. No computers were used except to set the type on the cover. The content was selected during the rise of the COVID-19 Omicron variant in December 2021, around the loose themes of rest, quiet, care, queer, sanctuary, reflection, collective, and generosity. This publication is also a reflective response to Urgency Reader 1 (2019) and Urgency Reader 2 (2020), and the focus on speed, crisis, and refusal in those volumes.
