" Good Morning Vietnam! "
Within the first 12 pages of the book, poems build to a point of no-return when the consideration of America frontierism is explored. This mobile-photo of sticker art in New York City reminds us how memory can influence creative expression in a world of ever-changing form.

Pre-order now -- prints will not be shipped until the artist returns to America (no later than August 15, 2014) so that they can be hand-signed.
" Do You "
Continuing with the theme of unconventional avenues for expression, a poem about a graffiti artist named VAN is paired with this most popular image by C. Alexander. The title "Do You" is left unpunctuated to allow its viewer to interpret it as a question or a statement or both.

" Theatrical Prerequisites "
" America the Overture "
As the book carries on, this image is shown adjacent to the poem "I am From" which explores what it means to be American. Taken on trash day before the garbage men showed up, this image pays homage to the overuse of production while also capturing a moment in technological history.
An overture is the starting point to a negotiation, or as I prefer, the prelude to an orchestra or opera performance. In a way, then, this photograph marks the end to a beginning (of something important).

" Peace "

" Surviving Disgrace "
King Akhenaten was the first Egyptian Pharaoh known to shift popular belief back to monotheism and whose legacy was actively destroyed by public officials after his passing. Any evidence of his throne, then, has not only survived being so heavily ostracized, but has overcome thousands of years of natural weathering, thus making it a very rare occasion to learn of his struggles with power & divine leadership.
This print was first unveiled in an effort to help raise money for Coppin State's 4th Annual "ArtCetera" auction for young health professionals. It is listed here at a severely discounted price from its original listing.
