"Stripping the maritime alphabet of its primary colors except blue and replacing them with muted browns and blacks, Mourning/Warning highlights the relationship of Americans of the African diaspora to water and maritime trade as well as the need for an alternate means of communication in time of emergency and duress. How do you send a warning call that hatred comes constantly in waves? M/W serves as a method of memorializing the slain and wronged, and of teaching our children and ourselves to be vigilant and wary in hostile terrain, where your skin color makes you an easy target ... M/W 2 consists of numerical and repeater, or substitute, flags that compliment the alternative alphabetic flags of the abecedarian M/W 1. The repeaters make character duplication possible. In this case, they illustrate patterns of pain, grief, humiliation. Conceived of in Newport, Rhode Island and completed in New Haven, Connecticut, M/W 2 was digitally printed in Josefin Sans typeface. This book is copy [blank] in an edition of twenty-six copies."--Colophon.
