A WEALTH OF STORIES

Woodbridge is a vibrant, historic neighborhood in Detroit that I am an active part of. Victorian homes line the streets like red-bricked gingerbread houses and in the spring, flowers blossom on front lawns. On occasion, rats might rustle from your crawlspace but they don't mean any harm.

This book is a celebration and documentation of the wonderful neighborhood of Woodbridge. From archival pamphlets and ephemera to my own hand-drawn illustrations of architecture styles, this book seeks to capture a moment in time through a carefully curated collection of experiences and items. As editor and designer, I gave the neighborhood a distinctive voice and imbued the publication with a sense of fun and education while maintaining a sophistication in interpretation of vernacular themes.

Hi there!

My name is Eric James Wilson. I'm a graphic designer for brands, packaged goods and LCD screens who likes to think, sometimes draws pictures, and makes silkscreened editions.

I like to get my hands dirty in my garden, see new things around the world, and I like to think I'm a pretty good cook.

 

Don't Be A Stranger!
