This book is literally Jim Dine’s letter to his “troops,” a confessional address to the people he has collaborated with, to his friends and family. Consisting of a long fluid poem and 18 color linocut portraits of those closest to Dine, the book explores his emotions and thoughts including childhood memories, reflections on his present artistic practice (“This week I painted, painted, painted the possibility of permanent silence”), as well as more philosophical musings (“Earth gives birth to time and heaven in a jealous parliament”).

This new Steidl book is an adaption with revised design and typography of Dine’s original My Letter to the Troops of 2016, a limited edition of 40 featuring linocuts hand-printed on Arches vellum from the blocks at Atelier Michael Woolworth in Paris.
