The happy accidents of collage
Illustrator Melissa Grimes, whose work over the past two decades has appeared in such venues as Rolling Stone, GQ, Mother Jones, and The Washington Post, tackled her collage for
"Home, Sick Home" with glee. "It's every girl's dream to do a doll house, and the added twist of its being a 'poisonous' doll house made it even more fun, says Grimes, whose studio in Austin, Texas, is crammed with scraps (vintage postcards, book jackets, maps) she has collected over the years. Having recently shifted to doing collage on the computer, Grimes was happy to take a more hands-on approach for this project. "I like the 'accidents' that can occur," she says.


Extraordinary voices
"I can always find great photographs," says book editor Mame Warren. "But the voices I discovered here at Hopkins were beyond my wildest dreams." Warren, who has edited eight books (most recently an anniversary book for Washington and Lee University), spent more than 18 months combing the university's archives and collecting oral histories for Johns Hopkins: Knowledge for the World, a pictorial history celebrating the university's 125-year anniversary.
