Common Monsters of the United States

Published in 2004, SOLD OUT


For the anniversary of the United States' bombing campaign in Iraq, the Double Elephant Press deployed this political satire in the form of a natural history. Large hand-colored etchings of treacherous beasts personify the societal mindset that encouraged this war. Shaped-text descriptions of the beastly behavior were printed on transparent abaca-fiber sheets which overlay the images.
