Born from a mutual appreciation for the publisher’s home-state of Wisconsin, the special edition of Jason Vaughn's first book, hide, continues our tradition of crafting fine books from unique materials.

hide began as a commentary of Wisconsin’s hunting culture through exploration of the hand crafted deer stands used to obscure the hunter as a metaphor for the sport’s changing values. The images are infused with a serenity that align with the hunter’s belief that their sport is not about violence, but about oneness with nature, time spent with children, a means to provide sustenance for large families. The decaying condition of many of the stands illustrates the tradition’s recent decline.

At age 32, Vaughn was diagnosed with leukemia. With a 3-month old son at home, he re-approached the work with a focus on permanence, mortality, decay, and acceptance of change.

Materials chosen for the special edition mimic the essence of the stands; weathered and rugged plywood, used to blend into the surroundings, concealing the contents within. Rough elements are used in contrast to the boxset's finely milled and assembled framework.

Includes a signed and silkscreened colophon, two signed Kodak F Surface prints, reflecting the area’s extreme climates of summer and winter, and a signed first edition of hide.
