About this project

Migraines aren’t merely bad headaches—they can be terribly debilitating with the symptoms lasting for days and sometimes weeks at a time. This project is dedicated to bringing the artwork of a migraine sufferer, Priya Rama, to the attention of a larger audience. Priya takes her migraine visions and transforms them into beautiful works of art. These paintings are not just expressions or explanations of what a migraine feels like, but rather “insider” perspectives of what a migraine looks like as it unfolds.

We are hoping to publish a book which will contain fifty images of Priya’s paintings in a large 8.5" x 11" hardcover format. Art books need quality paper, the best color printing and book design. Priya, in conjunction with Michael Dickman and Pocamug Press, needs your help to get this book published. Visit Priya’s excellent website, www.priyarama.com, and read her interview with the American Migraine Foundation at https://americanmigrainefoundation.org/understanding-migraine/priya-rama-artist-feature/. As a reward for donating, you will receive a signed copy of the final book, shipping included.

Some of the funds raised will be used to help educate the public about migraines by promoting the book in academic and public libraries.

Pocamug Press is an independent publishing company founded in 2014.

Risks and challenges

Editing, designing, and printing art books takes time and diligence. Priya will compare the printed results with her originals to get the best color reproduction possible. As a result, the final publication date might be delayed a week or two. However, we will keep everyone posted on the Pocamug Press Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pocamugpress/) as the project progresses.
