Book measures 6 X 9 1/2 inches, in handsewn pale-blue Roma paper covers. 8 pages, set in Spectrum type, and printed letterpress on Zerkall paper. Limited to 100 copies this #26, signed by both the artist and the author. All in new condition. A year after his visit in 1993 to the Children's Memorial Holocaust Museum in Jerusalem, Peter Balalian wrote Yad Yashem. He has described the setting and grounds of Yad Vashem as "beautiful and haunting". The children's memorial, which commemorates the millions of children killed in the Holocaust, is a profound and unique space lit by candles which reflect in marrors while names of the dead are read and Yiddish music is palyed. The poem is illustrated with a powerfully evocative two-color woodcut by Colleen Shannon, who designed the typography. Beautiful book. Bookseller Inventory #
