Frail Sister Limited Edition

Karen Green

Artist-writer Karen Green has made twenty-five different works, each appropriating a real letter from World War II, transforming it into a unique “Dear Reader” letter signed by “Jane Doe,” as if a missive from the book Frail Sister directly to the reader. With a particular kind of alchemy, Green takes the quotidian artifact and locates its essence, heightening the poetry, poignancy or humor.

Each letter is housed in a vellum envelope which is adhered to a signed and numbered first edition of the book.

Please note: The letters are selected randomly, and there are no special requests for particular works. Also, the price rises as availability decreases.
