Study of Dolores María de Ximeno y Cruz, a young intelectual and writer of the upper class bourgeoisie of Matanzas in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, whose memoirs, based on family diaries and stories, newspaper articles, and letters, offered a detailed and valuable portrait of Cuban society and culture at an important moment of change between the two centuries which was fundamental in shaping the national culture of Cuba.

Book
1 volume (unpaged) : illustrations ; 30 cm.
The poem is one of a suite of sonnets written from the point of view of a female Air Force physician deployed to Iraq.

The prints in the body of the book are digitized from original monotypes and laid over with serigraphy. The colophon is wrapped with original unique monotypes, is wired, and is meant to echo the shape of roadside munitions. The cover of the book is wrapped with Combat Paper made from the shredded uniforms of veterans, commissioned from Shotwell Paper of California.
