This article discusses the process of creating an artist’s book on Mary Ann Waters, a Black trans woman and sex worker in Antebellum Baltimore. In addition, informed by the author’s experience of making the artist’s book, he proposes a process of critical fabrication—which brings together Saidiya Hartman’s method of “critical fabulation” with Natalie Loveless’s articulation of “research-creation”—as a method for critical bibliography.
