Jane Tam's Can I Come Home With You?

Jane Tam's Can I Come Home With You? is an accordian-style artist book exploring cultural and personal history through a unification of photography and illustration. In her statement, Tam asserts:

"Creating a family album of sorts, this book combines common family memories through drawings of vintage America with the Chinese households of Brooklyn, New York. Although the memories are common and can be interpreted through many different cultures, the drawings derive from the 1950s suburban America; creating a known identity."
