20 Days in Spring


| June 13, 2003

This online book is ?one U.S. citizen?s outlet for feelings of frustration, disbelief, and impotence in the face of a war that should not have happened, that has been mounted by an administration drunk on its own power and delusions of grandeur.? The artist seems to have captured the despair and powerlessness many felt as the war moved ahead, as well as the hope of a saner world. On one page Noam Chomsky is quoted: ?In December 1987 the United Nations passed its major resolution condemning terrorism in all its forms, and called on all countries in the world to do everything they could to stamp out this terrible plague. One country abstained and two countries voted against it, namely the United States and Israel.? Downloadable in PDF format, this beautiful and haunting work is rendered in stark black, white, and red. The book also quotes Twain, Asimov and Lincoln, and features photos of war protesters and a timeline of George W. Bush?s military ?career.?
