I've had this since 1995 when it was new. Several times I took it out with the idea of listing it, but I never did. Now, twelve years later, it's moment has come. The front and back of the cover has writing, black on black, from the preamble to the Charter of the United Nations. Inside there is one sentence penned by Kahlil Gibran from his book Sand and Foam, 1926. The quote is this: "We shall never understand one another until we reduce the language to seven words." And that is how many there are here -- seven -- compassion, pathos, perception, temperance, balance, truth and possibility. Each word is paired with a work of art by these seven artists: Chris Nicholls, Paul Dallas, Anita Kunz, Hayes Henderson. Steven Evans, Sandra Dionisi and Ed Gajdel. Booklet measures 9" x 11-1/2" and is a rather scarce item.
