Jasper Travis, aka Mississippi, aka Brush Master is a prolific Indianapolis sign painter whose long career has seen him stamp his signature across huge swathes of the city.
After gaining recognition through the documentary photography of Kyle Long, Mississippi’s work is now celebrated in this book/zine edited by Stuart Hyatt and published on Risograph by Chicago’s Half Letter Press.
The book features a number of written pieces, alongside graphic interpretations of Mississippi’s work. These include Sam Roberts' reflections on the enduring appeal of hand-painted signs, alongside an interview with Mississippi himself, Kyle Long‘s personal story of discovery, an original work by poet and artist Douglas Kearney, and poetic responses to Mississippi’s work from Tatjana Rebelle.
