Summary

The etymology of the word “missive,” according to Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary, comes from Middle French: lettre missive, literally translated as “a letter intended to be sent.” Missives is a book composed of small, concise poetic writing and images each “intended to be sent.” They are notes from the author to herself and to others who wish to listen, see, and discover meaning in between.

Alicia Wirt-Fox received her B.F.A. from Parsons School of Design and her M.F.A. from Yale University School of Art. She has exhibited her paintings in numerous group and solo exhibitions throughout the United States and Europe. She is a recipient of the 19th Annual Richard Kelly Grant for her experimental work utilizing reflective light and color within the context of painting and sculpture. For over a decade, she has worked as a graphic designer in the publishing industry and has been involved in the development, design, and creation of many books for education. Missives is her first book combining both her writing and images. She currently lives and works in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.
