HECATOMBE 9-11, a limited edition artist's book, is a response to the 9-11 
attacks on the United States. This memorial book is an attempt to come to terms 
with an experience that is a constant open wound for the nation. It 
incorporates all the victims' names, ages, photographs of destroyed buildings and the 
impromptu memorials created by loved ones on downtown walls. It is dedicated to 
those who have sacrificed their lives to protect our freedoms.
The structure of the book symbolically reflects the two towers, which are 
connected by a wall of images in the center accordion structure. The photographs 
were taken by the artist and the victim's names are from the web site 
http:www.september11victims.com designed by Alex Spektor. 
The book was written - text and poem, designed, printed and bound by the 
artist.  The text and images are laser printed, using Mohawk for the accordion 
images, Fabriano Tiziano for the endsheets, and Pergamena for the covers. The 
cover title is laser stenciled to create a void. The end sheets are relief 
printed. Edition of 50.  © Memory Press 2007. The book is accompanied by three 
intaglio prints in the deluxe edition. Night Before the Day, Skeletal Remains and 
Waiting Urns. 
If you would like more information and /or to review some images of the book 
and prints, please contact: Maria G. Pisano at mgpstudio at aol.com.
