The Illustrated Obituary of Moses Marques

On view through July 31

Grinton I. Will Library

1500 Central Park Avenue, Yonkers

The Illustrated Obituary of Moses Marques commemorates the life of Moses Marques, D.H.S.*, throughout our eighteen-year coexistence. It is a graphic elegy and a stealth memoir. Hand-drawn and lettered, the four-hundred-word obituary, differentiated by a signature font, winds through the book, elaborated upon with detailed pen and ink drawings. A Greek chorus of background text and imagery simultaneously amplifies the events at hand. The “chorus” includes fictitious obituaries, want ads, fragments of poetry, Enlightenment quotations, and other ephemera. The mash-up is both content and imagery.
