Part autobiogrpahy, part mythology and totally beautiful, Theo Ellsworth’s much beloved perennial classic, Capacity, returns in a special edition!
Capacity tells the fantastically true and truly fantastic personal history of the artist as a young man. Theo Ellsworth’s astonishing drawings, which Pitchfork describes as “a combination of Where the Wild Things Are, a fever dream, a pagan woodland ceremony, and a notebook doodle,” give shape to thoughts profound and silly, bringing familiar doubts and hopes to visionary, new life. Just try to remember, this all really happened.
Counted among the best books of its original publication year by the Chicago Tribune, the Village Voice, the Huffington Post and dozens of others, Capacity is returning in a deluxe, special edition.
