THE ELMWOOD CAFES, an art book.

Over the past few years, Kit Vanbuskirk has been writing and creating visual artwork for a small hardback coffee table style book called The Elmwood Cafes. It is a collection of colorful, printed reproductions of paper collages and fictional stories that were inspired by nineteen cafes that existed together in a moment of time in the small business district of Elmwood in Berkeley. This unique district is a valuable community experience, and this unique book calls attention to that. It celebrates the beauty of this small neighborhood. It is a nice gift for the holidays.
