Publications by Susan Gilbert Harvey


Postmarks25th Anniversary Edition, 2013

A humorous blend of art, psychology, and cultural satire.

Artist Susan Harvey presents a visual fairytale for adults —
a fantasy journey through the roles of her creative life. The mild-mannered SOUTHERN BELLE is mysteriously transformed into the mighty JUNK WOMAN. This caped heroine creates sculpture and measures the monuments erected to prominent men. The meditative MONK WOMAN writes poetry and emulates Greek goddesses. After incubation, the white-robed MONK WOMAN bursts into flight as the free-spirited LUNATIC MOTH.

Includes a documentary, DANCING IN THE CROSSROADS, by Brian S. Armstrong.

POSTMARKS: the summers of ’98 is the prequel to Harvey’s first memoir, Tea with Sister Anna: a Paris journal.
