rritsen. Gerritsen has taken up the current plethora of books and their readers on New York City's subways as the proverbial canary-in-the-coal-mine, an indicator of the still robust nature of public readership, in the face of its ostensible decline. The work began for Gerritsen as a series of modest observations, and has turned into a series of unexpected, documentary portraits, set against a visual landscape of bestsellers, classics, romance novels, detective thrillers, Bibles, biographies and other printed books. Gerritsen depicts groups of individuals engrossed in the worlds they hold in their hands. From the subtle interactions of passengers and facial expressions to the sociological clues of book titles, a complexly layered narrative is informed by the choices of readers and the mélange of New York City's subway riders as they are transported both literally and figuratively, by the books in their hands. "The Last Book" also includes an illustrated index and bibliography charting the titles and authors that populate our minds during our daily commutes.
