BEING CIVIL by A. Lincoln features abstrusions by David Greenberg created from the full text of Abraham Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation (both versions) and the Bliss copy of his Gettysburg address. Greenberg's slim volume presents a distinctive meditation on the act of declaring war and its aftermath. Includes readable texts of the primary documents. Some quotes: "First Lincoln the President, next Lincoln the Movie, now Lincoln the Proclamation. Whether he's winning Civil Wars or mere Oscars, the man in the stove-pipe hat has his finger on the pulse and this book, art'n'all, transports ol' Abe into the uncharted territory of the new century." / SIMON WARNER, author of Text and Drugs and Rock'n'Roll: The Beats and Rock Culture. "The Emancipation Proclamation and Being Civil, two great works of art exceptionally intertwined!" / DELFEAYO MARSALIS, musician, producer, and educator whose current project is the appropriately named The Last Southern Gentlemen Tour.
