Home is an illustrated semi-autobiographical journal by artist and
author Jeffrey Schweitzer created between 2016 and 2019. During this
period the artist spent a significant amount of time rebuilding a 1957
Stearling travel trailer and using it as a mobile studio space in
which to work on art projects. The text for this project is
essentially a group of very short anecdotes typed with an old
typewriter. All of the edits and imperfections in the texts were
deliberately left in the book to embrace the informal journal-like
quality of the project. Many of the illustrations in this book are
very small pen and ink paintings merely a few inches in size. These
originals were created using layers of handmade paper varnished
together, giving these pieces a dream-like vinete that alludes to the
idea of faded memories. When all of this content was brought together
to create the book Home, it was organized more in the spirit of a
curated exhibition of writing and illustrations only loosely linear
but emblematic of a period in time and style shift in the artists
production. This is the first time we see the artist typing stories
directly onto very small, layered paintings and taking a more informal
approach to storytelling

How to Use Your Gift Cards Online

Hello! If you have a Flying Pig gift card (the cute plastic one with the pig and clouds), here's how to use it online:

Select the books you'd like to order. During the checkout process, you'll see a menu of options. Click on the little black arrow next to Store Gift Card pane:

Once you've expanded that menu item, you'll see a box to check Yes:

Once you click the checkbox Yes, you'll be asked to enter your gift card number. That's the number under the barcode on the back of your gift card. It might be a short or long number:

Enter it into the box below the words Enter Your Gift Card Number:

That's it! You will have to add a credit card as a backup in case your gift card doesn't cover the full amount of your purchase. **Because the website doesn't 'know' what amount is on your store gift card — the website and store system are separate entities — you will not see your gift card applied until your order leaves its Pending status and is Processing or Completed.**

If you received an Online Gift Code (NOT a physical card, but a string of numbers and letters emailed to you), please refer to your emailed gift to redeem those! They are applied instantly when you visit the website via the gift code email.
