Preacher's Biscuit Books

A preacher’s biscuit is made from mashing together all the dough fragments left-over from cutting out regular, round-shaped biscuits.

Preacher's Biscuit Books bring together elements from essay and critical writing, poetry, fiction, found and created images, personal and political histories, different publishing, layout, and design styles to tell individual and collective stories.
