Dust Collective was founded by Emily Sheffer in 2017.
Emily is a fine art photographer and book artist based in New England.
Dust Collective makes, promotes, and sells handmade, small-edition photography books.
The books are shown at book fairs around the country, each fair allowing for a different public audience to interact with and purchase the objects. Through the collective, the books reach a wide audience, and provide artists with proceeds from sales of their work.
Dust Collective books are held in the collections of many esteemed libraries and museums including:
The Museum of Modern Art
The New York Public Library
The International Center of Photography
Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library
The School of the Museum of Fine Arts Library
The Peabody Essex Museum
The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston
