Memes of 2018* No Captions Necessary is a publication that arose out of my curiousity of memes as they are both ubiquitous and yet their origins so opaque. Thus, this is an attempt to bring order to memes through an exploration of each ones origin, spread, and variations. The book consists of 80 memes chronologically ordered across 160 pages, all hand bound.

Be on the lookout for more of my process and accompanying photographs.
