Better Say Eagle

Better Say Eagle

An altered look
at judgment and
the meaning
of patriotism


So many times a book is judged by its cover. Here is the cover, the jacket as a paper sculpture, the book fully exposed, easy to flatten and store or mat and frame as a print. These five poems look at honesty, service, invisibility, power, and irony through cleaning, team training, military awards, a bug, and clichés. The prints are of bald eagles, a target, and combat boots and talons. Taken together, a powerful and playful set of words and images.

Letterpress printed from linoleum cuts and handset Caslon Oldstyle type in six colors on cotton Stonehenge paper.

Fully extended as a print: 21.5"w x 10"h
As a paper sculpture: 6" x 10"h x 1.5"w

Edition of 39. Signed and numbered.
