Notes

"Composed by the two creators of 'Eyewitness (2008) in collaboration with the poet Colvin, Remembrance is constructed in imposing form, the initial impact of the front boards recalling a tombstone or war monument. The interior, bracketed by the dark whorls of Strasser's acrylic endpapers, freeze-frames post apocalyptic thoughts of an inhumane future grounded in our own reality. In doing so, the artists remind the reader of the consequence of action, specifically in reference to current military actions which while aiming to liberate, actually consecrate suffering"--Publisher's catalogue.
