Impressions Ten Years Later

Creator

Goodman, Richard, 1945-

Description

On the morning of September 11, 2001, Richard Goodman, like many New Yorkers, was on his way to work. As he crossed Madison Avenue, he looked south to see one of the World Trade Center Towers 'bellowing smoke.' He wrote, 'I could set my position in time by that moment, like the frozen clock at Hiroshima.' For the next three months, Richard rode his bike almost every day from the Upper West Side to the World Trade Center disaster site, or as near as he could get to it. When he returned home, he wrote about what he had seen. "Impressions ten years later" is a set of wood engravings by Schanilec based on a bike ride with the author down toward the disaster site some ten years later.--Publisher.
"Printed in an edition of 250 copies by Gaylord Schanilec. The text, set in 12 point Emerson, was cast in metal by David Wolfe. The images were printed from end-grain maple blocks. Bound, by hand, at the Campbell-Logan Bindery."--Colophon.
No. 5 of a limited ed. of 250 copies
