This work was designed for inclusion in Typomania XXII, Corruption, 2008, an international portfolio of artists' prints. Features a red apple with a green snake coming out of it. Text begins: One classic American landscape haunts all of American literature. It is a picture of Eden, perceived at the instant of history when corruption has just started to set in. The serpent has shown his scaly head in the undergrowth. The apple gleams on the tree. The old drama of the fall is ready to start all over again - Jonathan Raban, For love and money 1987.
