Letters from a Doughboy

In the years after World War I, Robert Truesdell never spoke of his war experience, but he wrote more than 100 letters to his parents describing the details of his life in the service. The letters span a period of time starting with his arrival in the Fall of 1917 at Camp Wadsworth, South Carolina and concluding with his participation in the Victory March up Fifth Avenue in New York City in 1919. After Truesdell’s death, his daughter discovered the letters and carefully transcribed each one. The letters are accompanied by commentary on World War I prior to U.S.

Crafting Democracy: Fiber Arts and Activism calls upon craft, during an era of political disruption, as a creative force to voice dissent, express hope, critique the curtailment of civil rights, and to restore dignity to the human experience. The essays and artwork featured in this exhibition catalogue are framed within the context of American democracy and disclose how we, as individuals and as a culture, “craft democracy” and ultimately question what democracy means today.

The Comics Scare Returns

 The popularity of horror comics in the 1950s was curtailed by a suppression of popular horror stories by those concerned with juvenile delinquency and bad taste. Thirty years later, creators Alan Moore and Neil Gaiman produced popular and artful comics like Swamp Thing and The Sandman that took advantage of the new shape of American culture in the 1980s. Terrence Wandtke details the history and re-shaping of horror comics and its relevance to popular series such as HellboyThe Goon, and The Walking Dead

Monet’s Waterloo Bridge
Edited By Nancy Norwood

Impressionist master Claude Monet began over forty versions of Waterloo Bridge during his three London sojourns between 1899 and 1901. He viewed his paintings of the landmark bridge both individually and as an ensemble, collectively expressing his sense of the essential subject—the atmosphere and colors of the fog-bound landscape of London’s Thames River. Monet struggled to complete these paintings after his return to France, where he re-worked many of the canvases in his Giverny studio, releasing them for sale over the course of several years.

Words and Their Meanings

An argument as timely as it is timeless, Aldous Huxley’s Words and Their Meanings argues the significance and power of words. A less well-known work originally published by The Ward Ritchie Press in 1940, Huxley’s essay arrived at the end of the Great Depression and coincided with U.S. entry into WWII, a time when global relations were heavily impacted by the craft and manipulation of language. Words and Their Meanings was selected as one of the Western Books of 1940, which was a celebration and recognition of fine printing.
