book, printed letterpress with hard covers enclosed in a matching clamshell box. The
pop-ups are constructed of a variety of papers including a cotton and gampi paper made for
the project by Bridget OMalley of Cave Paper. The complete text is Weve
all had nightmares. Vivid as they may be there is always that sweet release upon waking.
But what happens when events in our waking lives surpass even our most horrific dreams.

September 11, 2001. The text was rewritten in the aftermath
and finally completed. Ed: 15. 2006, 9 ½ x 7
