The Holocaust. It is a subject I have visited in my bookmaking many times. As the decades move on, our memories fade. The witnesses are no longer alive to speak. It is even more crucial to remind ourselves that these events took place. We need to teach young people that the integrity of our humanity towards others is always at risk and that the sepia images of the past are the reminders of our own failings.
Artist BioLinda Piacentini-Yaple, a published poet and artist from the Los Angeles area, created her first book about Alaska at the age of eight.

She began studies in calligraphy in Los Angeles and is a continuing member of the Society of Scribes and Illuminators and the Calligraphy and Lettering Arts Society, in London.
