A Ritual to Read to Each Other
Susan Lowdermilk
Art Library Rare Books Collection N7433.4.L69 R58 2007

Limited ed. of 25 signed and numbered copies, Art Library has copy 11. Includes the text of William Stafford's poem A ritual to read to each other on inside cover flap. "This book was created in reaction against the US/Iraq and Afghanistan war. The two-dimensional woodcut image that makes up the tunnel structure was originally titled, 'Peace Inside the Noise' and was meant to stand on it own. As a tunnel book, I feel the piece visually and conceptually supports Stafford's message in his poem, 'A Ritual to Read to Each Other'—A plea for reliance on community and cooperation for peace and harmony"--Artist's statement from 23 Sandy Gallery website.
