Delicatessen is a signed and numbered limited-edition (150) single signature book with
offset printed text, and hand-colored illustrations. Originally created for an exhibition at
Smedley’s bookstore in Ithaca New York, in 1982, it was featured in the #5 issue (Fall 2002)
of Nashim, Journal of Jewish Women’s Studies and Gender Issues  where I wrote, “In Delicatessen,
I confront the peculiar convergence of death with food that sometimes makes the atmosphere
at a shiva (the gathering of family and friends in a house of mourning) seem raucous and
party-like and, paradoxically, full of life.
