CONFETTI #43: "We are a disease . . . "; Limited Edition, Signed Silkscreen Print. Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. CONFETTI #43: "We are a disease . . . "; Limited Edition, Signed Silkscreen Print.
(Lexington, KY: Origami Express), 2006. First edition. One of 67 copies SIGNED and numbered in pencil by Vonnegut. Two-color silkscreen print on white Coventry cotton paper measuring 11 x 15 inches. According to Vonnegut, "Confetti is Origami's response to the in-your-face lack of meaning or message in so much modern art, starting, perhaps, with Mondrian, and of course excluding the strikingly communicative Cubists, but surely including the intellectually and morally blank works by the so-called 'Abstract Expressionists.' Origami says to the latter, with pictures as didactic as this one, 'If you have absolutely nothing to say to anybody, can't you please shut up?'" Fine.

MISSING IN ACTION. Kurt Vonnegut, Jr. MISSING IN ACTION.
Lexington: Petro III Graphics, 2004. First edition. Number 5 of 100 SIGNED numbered copies. Vonnegut's heartbreaking letter to his parents dated May 29, 1945, informing them he was no longer "missing in action." The letter recounts his ordeals after capture in December 1944, which included a forced march to Limberg (60 miles without water, food, or sleep), where his division was locked up without sanitation and then strafed by the Royal Air Force, killing 150; after which they were moved to a P.O.W. camp in Muhlburg to do hard labor without medical attention or clothes and little food. During a subsequent evacuation to Hellexisdorf, they were strafed by Russian planes, killing fourteen. He and several other survivors eventually stole a team and wagon and managed to get to American lines. Signed by Vonnegut with a self-portrait dated May 29, 2004. With "Kilgore Trout" drawing signed by Vonnegut bound in. A beautiful production, bound by Walt Bartholomew of Sylph Publications, Tucson, in brown Nigerian goatskin and marbled paper, with a full Record Basalt cloth slipcase. Fine. There were also 26 signed lettered copies with a separate signed "Goodbye Blue Monday" print laid in. SIGNED LIMITED EDITION -- HEARTBREAKING LETTER TO HIS PARENTS.
