Jason Jägel's Book/Bag is a limited edition project consisting of two complementary parts:
Part #1 is a sturdy 10 oz. cotton canvas tote silkscreened with the start of Jason's graphic short story Take Me With You. The story begins on the front and back of the bag and continues inside the companion book (part #2).
Part #2 continues the story within a 72 page, perfect bound, full color book that is contained within a special interior pocket sewn into the tote. The project consists of original drawings and text that describes a life where books are embedded in the day-to-day: companions for seeing, reading, telling, and recording.
