IX XI MMI is a heroically scaled book that collects all eight of Mac McGill’s tumultuously emotional pen and ink drawings depicting the events of 9/11, as first seen in issue 32 of World War III Illustrated. The work was also featured in the group show, Reactions at Exit Art (January 26 to March 30, 2002), and in Booklyn’s Even The Birds Were On Fire touring exhibition. The original pen and ink drawings are now in the permanent collection of The Library of Congress.

Images are letterpress printed from magnesium plates with text in lead type onto Rives heavyweight paper. End sheets are of blood-red Moriki with laminated jet-black buckram covers. Folios are pamphlet stitched. 11″ x 14″ with 22″ page spread. 10 pages. 2003.
