War on Terror.

Osman, Laimah (illus.)

AZAD, 2010. Octavo. Trifold with internal flap structure. One of five copies, of which this is the first, signed and dated by the artist, Laimah Osman. Interacting with the multiple flaps of this book reveals permutations of cut-out bullets, soldiers, and civilians with raised arms, which overlay inkjet-printed maps of Afghanistan and the United States. The maps invite the viewer to perceive them through an impersonal haze, to face the instability of their borders and cities through the defined presence of the cutaway military imagery. The front cover features a figure amorphous but for hands raised overhead, cast underneath a rain of bullets. Laimah Osman is a Brooklyn-based artist and educator of Middle-Eastern descent currently teaching at Parsons School of Design. Small glue spots on the front cover, else fine. Housed in a protective linen sleeve stitched with gold string threaded through with gold accents and cardamom pods. Item #30132

Price: $450.00
