Double accordion fold book with illustrated, gate fold front cover; green linen rear cover. When the book is opened, symmetrically oriented pages open to reveal a digitally printed, illustrated, repeating composition of a cut out paper doll style of the same soldier (in battle fatigues), cut horizontally four ways (head, torso, legs, feet).They each face slightly inward towards the center. In the interior center of the rear board is a black silhouette of a soldier with an oval target with a computer cursor style arrow on his chest. This work is unsigned and unnumbered.
