Books

“The world of books is the most remarkable creation of man. Nothing else that he builds ever lasts. Monuments fall; nations perish; civilizations grow old and die out; and, after an era of darkness, new races build others. But in the world of books are volumes that have seen this happen again and again, and yet live on, still young, still as fresh as the day they were written, still telling men’s hearts of the hearts of men centuries dead.” — Clarence Shepard Day

Mine

Mine was a book completed in 2016 as my final capstone project necessary for my B.A.S. degree. The writing, illustrations, layout, and publishing were all completed by me.

I also created an interactive presentation to accompany the book which includes animations and the process behind the entire project. To see the presentation, go to: bit.do/mine-story

Only from the Grave

This is the journal of my father, Clay Kevin Tillett. There is no written date but I believe it was begun the summer of 1998 and ended the night of his death, December 17, 1998. 

He shot himself in the middle of the night in the home he shared with my mom and me. He was only 38 years old.

In Sweetness and Love

This book is 160 pages of absolutely stunning Kodachrome photographs taken in the mid 1950s to 1960s by my great-grandparents John and Mabel Moore accompanied by poignant quotes, lyrics, and excerpts.

They spent as much time traveling as they did at home and locations captured include Wyoming, California, New Mexico, Hawaii, New York, Guam, Arizona, and the Philippines.
