Working from the voluminous scrapbook of his father, an obsessive collector of Americana, Brian Burrell has brought together the poignant inscriptions stamped on the Minute Man Statue and the Vietnam Veterans Memorial with the promises recited in the courtroom and in the darkened chambers of secret societies to prepare this grand tribute to America's legacy in words. Line art.
