Robert Schultz and Binh Danh, with the Taubman Museum of Art, are preparing to bring out the book, War Memoranda: Photography, Walt Whitman, and Memorials in May 2019 in time for the 200th anniversary celebration of Whitman’s birth, May 31, 1819. War Memoranda is a book of art, poetry, and comment that looks at the U.S. Civil War in a new way, informed by Whitman’s humane example. The book contains 51 images, including cyanotypes of battlefield memorials by Binh Danh and chlorophyll print portraits of combatants and their loved ones by Robert Schultz. Complementing the art is a generous sampling of Whitman’s wartime poetry and prose, plus guest essays by four distinguished guests–Library of Congress historian Barbara Bair, author Molly Rogers, and poets David Lehman and Stanley Plumly. As of this writing (February 2019) a Kickstarter campaign is in progress to fund fine art printing of the hardcover edition. Search Kickstarter.com for War Memoranda before April 2 to support this project. Campaign premiums include acknowledgment of support, signed copies of the book, a letterpress broadside of a poem and art by the two authors, a handmade portfolio holding archival quality page spreads, and, remarkably, one-of-a-kind daguerreotypes by Binh Danh and chlorophyll prints by Robert Schultz.
