An artist book humbly made and shared for two purposes: first, to shed light on the circumstances and characters of people who immigrate to the United States; secondly, to present the particular love and hope of my grandparents, who had no intention of staying in the New World, but who, because of children born and accidents not chronicled in this small story of their big lives, chose to become American citizens. I generated text from the letters they wrote to each other and from historical events between 1918 and 1920. The images that illustrate the pages are collages made from clips of dramatic paintings, news articles and photos that were created during the time between World Wars.
