Never Before Published Photographs
Colonel David Harper, Mr. Luke Pontifell, and Cadet Monica Burciaga presented the Thornwillow Press' edition of "Beauty is the Beginning of Terror: Writings from the Great War" to West Point's Special Collections. This fine-press edition of World War I poetry and prose is the culmination of two years' collaboration between West Point cadets and the Thornwillow Press and will be retained in perpetuity by the Academy library. The text of the project was curated by COL Harper's Spring 2018 "Book History" course, while two Summer Internship (AIAD) cohorts of "Thornwillow Fellows" worked on the volume during the summer months of 2018 and 2019. The West Point Library archives provided never-before-published photographs from their archives.
