Published by Primary Information.

This is one of the earliest of Greer Lanktonís (1958Ė96) journals, sketchbooks and daybooks to appear in the artistís archives, and the first to be published in facsimile form. Written during her time as an art student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, the journal offers key insights into Lanktonís mind at work before her career-defining move to New York in 1978, where she would become an important figure of the East Village art scene in the 1980s and early í90s with her lifelike dolls and theatrical sets.
Containing drawings, behavioral diagrams and aspirational, occasionally confessional writing, the journal is a record of imagining the body and mind reconciled through transformation. In these pages, the 19-year-old turns an inquisitive, sociological eye toward the emotional landscape and somatic effects of the days recorded here; days leading up to her decision to undergo hormone treatment and gender-affirming surgery in 1979. Lankton reflects with raw vulnerability and keen self-awareness on critical questions of self-image, social perception, gender normativity and human behavior.
