Part of a series exploring gun violence and fetishism in America. This is the gun that was used to assassinate Abraham Lincoln. The images are printed with archival ink onto pages of books about Lincoln. The books are then cut up, pages are turned on their sides and ordered to reform the image of the gun using the edges of the pages.
