Re-Portrait of an Icon
by Douglas Brown


Douglas Brown’s Re-Portrait of an Icon reaches into the lived facts that give an icon its power in a collective imagination. The reader realizes that an icon is both a shared hope and a shared proof of good strength. What does it mean to follow that proof, to write that proof into one’s own life?  Douglas Brown suggests it is to know an icon still should aspire to a higher good. 

This broadside edition of Douglas Brown’s Re-Portrait of an Icon is designed and published by every other, a collective dedicated to making literary broadsides by writers from around the world.
