'the thousand-year punch' by david schneider


'the thousand-year punch' by david schneider is a series of essays exploring the changes of consciousness we need to make, in America, and as human beings, in order to deal with the climate crisis. This braided series gathers together a number of threads and makes a very sharp point, situated within historical facts. It binds together American movies and popular culture, medieval history, English history and poetry, and basic understandings we should understand, about where we’ve been.

Part II will speak about where we’re going.

inside are collages & grace pages made from painted 19th century dictionary pages by aaron howard.
