All The President's Men in the Library of Congress - side view
The column bases in this piece are cut from a vintage book plate of the Continental Congress book with excerpts on President Washington, President Jefferson, President Grant (Ulysses S.), and William Lloyd Garrison (prominent American abolitionist, journalist, suffragist and social reformer). The “newspapers” were magnesium print plates of just the headline of a newspaper column that might have ran between 1930 and 1950. Most newspaper printer plates were destroyed during WWII, melted down and reused. The background are patina'd pages from a book on ethics in government.
