Devotion: Today's Future Becomes Tomorrow's Archive, edited by Jarrett Earnest, contains essays and interviews, reproductions of notes, diagrams, works of art, and rare ephemera representing an archive of overlooked and excluded material.

Queer people have had to create and maintain archives as alternate repositories due to systematic exclusion from traditional archival practices and institutions. Propelled by the editor's meticulous collecting and explorations of experimental living practices and embodied materiality, this book is a beautifully designed, radical collection of overlooked and forgotten IBPOC and LGBTQ2S+ archives.

Published by PUBLIC Books and distributed internationally by Wilfrid Laurier University Press.
