Quarantine: Artists and Writers on Isolation


Quarantine: Artists and Writers in Isolation is a book by the photographer Bill Armstrong with an introduction by the noted critic Lyle Rexer. It is free for current subscribers with their Photo Review subscription, but you may purchase the book separately here.

With Armstrong’s evocative, transformative images and text by writers and artists from Boccaccio and Camus to Chaucer and Shakespeare, to Frida Kahlo and Virginia Woolf, to Eldridge Cleaver and Nelson Mandela, recounting their thoughts on living under conditions of quarantine and isolation, some during pandemics of the Plague and the Spanish Flu, “Quarantine” is an apt and thought-provoking volume for our time. The book is softbound.

Shipping is $5 in the U.S. and $12 elsewhere. Shipping costs are calculated as part of the price when you select your shipping area.

The portraits in the book are also available as 8×10″ and 20×24″ prints. If you would like to purchase more than one Quarantine-related item (book or print), please contact to discuss potentially modified shipping.
