Michael Peven, Cradle of Civilization, Fayetteville: Primitive Press, 1993 [2nd edition, 2011]
This lively accordion has stood on my mantlepiece for a number of weeks now and it still holds its own after all this time. Essentially one long print folded at particular key spots, the different types of imagery and assorted texts work well in combination with the profusion of color to thoroughly discredit the idea and activity of war. One-sided with single pages 4.5" (w) x 8" (h), and with its 14 pages opened up its 5ft 3inches long.
