St. Augustine, Florida: self published, 2020. 13" x 11¼". Quarter cloth over Davey bookboard. Limited to 20 copies, this being number 4, and signed and numbered in pencil on the last page by the artist and calligrapher. 26 leaves, all in groups of two pasted together at outer margins of internal pages, with the recto of the first leaf and verso of the second screen printed with text and images; including the paste downs, a total of 28 printed pages. Near fine: the bottom edge of the lower board is frayed, but this is intentional. According to the artist, this "was an attempt to formally illustrate the threadbare and worn edge of the 'national fabric' in the year 2020."This is an artist's book which comments on the dystopia that is the Trump administration's handling of the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as many of his followers' response to it. The artist, Mike Taylor, specializes in critiques of the relationship between popular culture and the corporate state and his work is already held at over 25 institutions. Mike juxtaposes Trump's words with searing imagery that lays bare the nearly comedic tragedy of the politicization of the virus, the co-opting of American values into acts of cruelty, and the sheer insanity of the abandonment of science and logic with respect to public policy. Much of the text and imagery can be seen in Mike's full prospectus for the book which can be found by copying and pasting the following link into your browser:
