Berlin Album presents the travelogue observations of a speaker on high alert—to both present and past—a man in history and looking for it at the same time. This is a lovely collection, keenly aware of the transitory nature of memory.
Printed on light tea cardstock with Japanese silk paper flyleaf.
Released: February 2009
