Blisner, IL examines the effects of deindustrialization in a Rust Belt town. The book serves as a sequel to Blisner, Ill., the change in postal abbreviations significant in their respective points in the chronology of the town, and frames its predecessor as a historical document from which to draw information at the present day site.

The book focuses on mid-sized cities in Southern Illinois and how they attempt to maintain the veneer of their once industrially-prosperous moment. Blisner, IL is organized in chapters that loosely follow the regional picture book formula of understanding place through its history, industry and culture, the terms often functioning synonymously.

Blisner, IL was launched with an exhibition at Webber, which you can see archived here.
