Lucia Press: "Todd and Miller collaborated on their artist book FUBAR during residencies at the Experimental Printmaking Institute, Lafayette College, Easton, PA and at Virginia Center for Creative Arts in Amherst, VA. "The poem is one of a suite of sonnets written from the point of view of a female Air Force physician deployed to Iraq. FUBAR is printed on Rives BFK paper in a modified orihon (accordion) format that allows the poem to be read as the viewer moves around the piece, creating a physical interaction. The prints in the body of the book are digitized from original monotypes and laid over with serigraphy. The colophons are wrapped with original, unique monotypes, are wired, and are meant to echo the shape of roadside munitions. The covers of the books are wrapped with Combat Paper made from the shredded uniforms of veterans, commissioned from Shotwell Paper of California. "J. C.
