Duplex green / dark-gray cover boards. Bound with Kraftex leather strip. Signed and numbered by the artist. Dirk Hagner: "Systemic racism has been with our country before its independence. Not even to mention genocide and slavery. All these were part of the founder's principles of thought and the foundation of our county's economy from its start. Despite of a civil war fought and won against slavery, racism in the United States is rampant and ubiquitous. "However, this is not only an American issue, it is a huge worldwide human problem." Half of the artist's proceeds will go to the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Docherty, Catalog of the Exhibition, Catalog of the Exhibition: Threatened and Endangered: Artists' Books Created by Rebecca Goodale, 2004: "Because human encroachment on nature more often takes place incrementally, the damage may be done before the consequences are clear. Goodale's Northern Blazing Star anticipates a future in which species survival depends on artificial recreation of natural patterns. This star book focuses on Maine's last grassland, the Kennebunk Plains, home to the grasshopper sparrow, upland sandpiper, black racer, and Northern blazing star.

Blue Heron Press: "In words and images, micro-to-macroscopic layers of poignant meaning and memory are an intimately held and transient wonder, just as light melds recto and verso printing into one light-born envelope. Intimations are caught and lost in the act of reading, viewing, meditating, immersing. A fortuitous invitation from Longwood University, Virginia, pairs Robert Pinsky (Poet Laureate 1997-2000) and book artist Karen Kunc.

Susan Viguers: "'The Opossum' is a specimen book in various ways. Most obviously, it is about a particular animal, the Virginia opossum. Conceived in the tradition of the type specimen book, it is a compendium of voices/observations about the opossum. The preface to the book consists of a statement by John D. Godman in 1831: 'Perhaps nothing can more clearly demonstrate the impatience of the human mind, and the reluctance with which men yield to the hard necessity of carefully observing the operations of nature, than the history of this animal.' The primary text, my own story of encounters with the opossum, is surrounded by passages from… Read More

Handbound in laser-engraved plexiglass covers with Coptic binding of linen thread. Signed and numbered by the artist. Islam Aly: "Sacred Meanings is based on the hexagon, one of the main shapes in creating grids and patterns in Islamic art. The form of the book, its words, and its progression reveals the fading and development of a pattern. The book invites viewers to consider their experiences with the transcendent and indivisible. Sacred Meanings presents an encounter that deals with the dichotomies of life, fall and rise, suspicion and faith, disorientation and orientation, chaos and order.

The book was inspired from Ibn Al Mqufas's Kalila and Dimna, a ninth-century collection of animal fables, which came to Persia from India. Similar to George Orwell's political allegory Animal Farm, the stories are about people and politics. The animal characters were used to represent social inequality and oppression.
