Lakes I've Swam In is a zine I created for the Floating Library, an interactive public art project by Sarah Peters. The Floating Library is a collection of artist-made books and printed matter aboard a raft, on a lake, accessible by boat.

Growing up in the Milwaukee area, my mom would take my sister and me to a beach on the shores of Lake Michigan every summer. We'd spend all day floating in the waves, making drip castles, and looking for cool rocks. I've loved swimming in a big, cold lake all my life and this project is a simple recollection of all the lakes I've swam ever swam in (as of 2016.)
