  • "Letterpress printed and bound ... during an artist's residency at Small Craft Advisory Press in Tallahassee, Florida by Sara White, MFA candidate in Book Arts at the University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa"--Colophon
  • "Photographs in this book were originally printed in These Were Our Homes, a pamphlet written and compiled by Elizabeth Cousins Rogers in New Orleans, 1954, in an effort to publicize the unjust destruction of homes along the batture. Much of the information in Riverine came from the Batture Dwellers Association Records 1949-1958, Howard Tilton Memorial Library Special Collections, Tulane University"--Inside of front folio cover
  • Artist's statement: "RIVERINE is an artist's book and fragmented essay about a riparian landscape in New Orleans, LA called the 'batture.' Accompanied by letterpress printed imagery and textures of industrial structures and nature that inhabit this landscape located between the man-made levee and Mississippi River along the margins of the city, the book's text shifts and flows with each page-turn. It pays homage to communities that have existed on the batture in homes on stilts throughout history and the liminal experience of living in a place that is neither water nor solid ground, undefinable and always changing"--Vamp and Tramp Booksellers website, viewed October 28, 2016
