Description:

In 2008, we teamed up with the Prelinger Library, a veritable temple of printed ephemera based in San Francisco, CA. With the help of PL founders Rick and Megan Prelinger, we chose five books from their mighty collection and invited any and everyone to produce short audio works inspired by TWO of the books, and including the voice of a stranger.
