Normandy Memorial

I made this stitched felt book in response to a trip I made to Normandy in November of 2014 to see the beaches where Allied troops landed on June 6, 1944. The beaches are beautiful: empty of trash, advertising and tourist hordes. They are natural and pristine, as though nothing momentous happened there. This made them powerfully moving places for me. The museum artifact displays and films commemorating the events of that time were also affecting.
