In Notes on Paper, Damon Falke walks us through the landscape of one man’s mind, which contains both his past and an awareness of our common future. From within private memories the narrator reaches out to us with “we” and “you”, and each spare line invokes the hope that we, like him, are worthy of return to our most longed for places. And if to return is not our fate, and really it never can be, the narrator bids us survey our own memories, taking time in the present for the winds, and the words, that move the world. A work of profound beauty with illustrations by artist Laura Mae Jackson.
