Overview

This is Your Captain Speaking is a personal poem written by Melissa Chen for her dear friend Ana Arias-González. Together, they take a flight through Heartbreak Mountain, Anxiety Sea, Depression Valley, encountering close crashes and storms, to reach their destination of the Middle of Fucking Nowhere.

The book takes a surrealistic and minimalistic approach for the visuals.
