The idea for these diverse products sprung from a desire to find new ways to expose existing work, and an excuse to create something new. After all, aren’t postcards a much more useful and colorful means of communicating with one’s friends than Twitter? For shipping and handling $10 for domestic and $20 for international deliveries will be added at checkout.

AT WAR WITH WAR

At War with War, 5000 Years of Conquests, Invasions and Terrorist Attacks, An Illustrated Timeline

Letterpress and Offset, Limited First Edition

At War with War visualizes humanity’s 5,000-year-long state of conflict, chaos, and violence on a continuous timeline. Seventy pages of stark black-and-white pen-and-ink drawings and woodcuts illustrate history’s most notorious battles — from 3300 BCE to the present day.

Interspersed are contemplations on war from historic thinkers, including excerpts from “The Art of War” by Sun Tsu, “The Complaint of Peace” by Desiderius Erasmus, and “The State” by Randolph Bourne.

Size: 7 3/4” x 9 3/4”
