Baltimore Catechism

The Baltimore Catechism is an unintentional, imaginary revision of A Catechism of Christian Doctrine, Prepared and Enjoined by Order of The Third Plenary Council of Baltimore (1885) wherein the authors posit the most fundamental and absurd physical and metaphysical questions, and postulate ever more fundamental and absurd answers. Originally intended as just an artist’s book, the project quickly took on a much wider scope, begetting large-scale woodcuts and accompanying prints, a performance component, and hand-set letterpress posters and broadsides.

The Baltimore Catechism was written by Chris Fritton and Ric Royer in Baltimore, MD in 2010; it was designed, printed, and assembled by Chris Fritton in November 2012.
