This exhibition catalogue from the Center for Book Arts presents works by nearly three dozen artists that convey strong emotional content to discuss difficult social, political, and personal issues of loss on both local and global levels. It consists of an introductory essay by exhibition curator Maria G. Pisano and a picture and bibliographical information of each of the 36 exhibited works. The works presented in this exhibition show how artists connect and respond to events in their own lives and in the global community such as lynching, Hurricane Katrina, rape and other sexual violence, the Indonesian Tsunami of 2004, war, the death of loved ones, and the Holocaust.
