Poestenkill, NY: Kaldewey Press, 1994. Kaldewey, Gunnar. Three booklets and three hanging scrolls, housed together in a clamshell box. One of forty copies. With silk screened images on translucent paper and text in three languages and several colors. Signed by the publisher/designer/author, Gunnar Kaldewey. In this work, Kaldewey explores three representative buildings notable for their height, one of which no longer exists: The Longhua Pagoda of China, the World Trade Center in New York City, and the Cathedral of Cologne, Germany. The Longhua Pagoda is accompanied by discussion of its construction and its architectural elements, while the World Trade Center is described using statistics and numbers. The text accompanying the Cathedral of Cologne highlights its centuries-long building process and survival. An extremely fine copy of what now has become a memorial for September 11th in its own way.
