  • Artist's book which records an imaginary conversation between Aphrodite and Ares about the love affair between Admiral Horatio Nelson, and Lady Emma Hamilton, wife of the British ambassador in Naples, mortals who embody the qualities of love and war that are the special purview of the two gods. The gods manipulate events that lead to a net of disapproval and scandal being thrown over Nelson and Emma. The artists offers alternative perspectives about the events that transpired, confirming once again that love and war are tied closely together in both the affairs of the gods and the affairs of mortals
  • Issued in a limited edition of 35 copies during the fall and winter of 2007-2008--Colophon
  • Colophon: "The book is built around five signatures called "intermezzos" attached to a concertina spine. Each intermezzo has a unique abstract acrylic painting on paper; an image of an historic sea battle printed on transparent film; a Renaissance-era painting of aphrodite colored with acryllic wash; and a page with cutout windows. The book concludes with a pop-up square-rigged vessel containing the images of Admiral Nelson and Aphrodite ... Two-layer monotype portraits of Admiral Nelson and Emma Hamilton ... have been reproduced as high-resolution digital prints on transparent film as the frontispiece ... Text paper is BFK Rives. The books were assembled by Charles Hobson and Alice Shaw. Mary Daniel Hobson assisted with editing the text..."
  • "The cover and slipcase have been covered in a handmade paper called Canal made in Quebec that has been embossed with a pattern of netting for the slipcase. The cover contains a lenticular photograph fabricated at RWC Digital Graphics, Fort Worth, Texas, combining an image of Aphrodite with an age-of-sail sea battle scene ... John DeMerritt, Emryville, California, made the slipcases and covers for edition" -- Colophon
