Komma (after Dalton Trumbo's Johnny Got His Gun)

A modified facsimile of Dalton Trumbo's 1938 anti-war novel Johnny Got His Gun. While Trumbo wrote the book entirely without commas, Hirsch has reedited the novel to include the previously omitted punctuation according to The Chicago Manual of Style. Hirsch notes that the word comma is derived from the Greek komma, meaning "something cut off." The artist's book is accompanied by a pamphlet with contextualizing essays by Maria Muhle and Kristina Lee Podesva.
