What makes a bully?
How is a bully different from a fighter?
How is a fighter different from a terrorist?
Do words create a bully? Is a bully a victim? Are words knowing?
Do words create a terrorist? Is a terrorist a victim? Are words judgment?
Do words create a fighter? Is a fighter a winner (or a loser)? Are words true?
What makes a bully?

On Judgment: The Book of Bully was created for An Inventory of Al-Mutanabbi Street, a project of The Al-Mutanabbi Street Coalition, a global book arts response to the car bombing of Al-Mutanabbi Street in Baghdad on March 5, 2007.
Pondering the sources and causes of the destruction of Al-Mutanabbi Street and what this act really was about, at its essence, creates more questions for me than it does provide answers. Considering parallels and relationships is one way of thinking through the problem.
In designing the book I wanted aspects of the form to communicate aspects of the complexity of the content, that are not overtly stated in the text. I chose wood relief because I wanted the look of the pages to have a hand-printed aesthetic to reflect the long history of books, the printed word, and the street itself.
