[BKARTS] Polygamy/Deseret Alphabet

"PolygamyLand" describes itself as a "Panorama Book."  The 16.5 foot-long ink-jet printed accordion fold work consists of color panoramic photographs and diary captions by the author, Tom Trusky, relating to his disturbing journey to polygamous communities in Utah and Arizona.  Photographs and captions appear on one side of the unfolded text block.  The reverse side contains informative extracts about Fundamentalist Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) printed atop screened layers of various-sized Deseret Alphabet letterforms.  The copyright title listed for the work is in the Deseret Alphabet, an alphabet created by and for early members of the Latter-Day Saints church and not in use since circa 1870 .  Should readers be unfamiliar with Deseret, the author has reproduced on the back cover endpaper a translation chart.  The book is bound with Tyvek and its back cover features a helpful map of UT/NV/AZ.
