The War Works Hard; Lisa Rappoport, Richmond, California, USA, 2012 The War Works Hard is a poem by Iraqi-American poet Dunya Mikhail presented as an 11-page accordion fold artist’s book. The English text, translated by Elizabeth Winslow, is on one side; the Arabic text has its own cover, opening from right to left, and occupies the other side of the pages. So the book has two front covers, giving the two languages equal weight. Both sides contain drawings made for the book by John Paisley. Design, letterpress printing and binding by Lisa Rappoport at Littoral Press. Ten per cent of the sales price goes to Doctors Without Borders for humanitarian relief work. Printed letterpress from handset Bernhard Gothic metal type with Legend titling (for the English), and from photopolymer plates (for the Arabic and the drawings) on Rives de Lin or Folio Antique paper.
