2011-current

In October of 1957, the United States Department of the Army issued Field Manual 21-76 to enlisted men. This manual made its way into my hands nearly fifty years later, and has been in my studio ever since. Though it is a surprisingly comprehensive guide to staying alive, the care with which the illustrations are handled is what immediately attracted my interest.

My goal is to recreate all the illustrations in the manual.
