After Reasonable Research...

The full title:

"After Reasonable Research, Years with No Acts of ‘Open and Declared Hostile Conflict’ Are Indicated with a Perpendicular Line. Perhaps They Were Periods of Peace."

from Printed Matter's catalog:
This astounding document of the absence of peace in our time lists all open and declared armed hostile conflicts that have taken place between the year 1 and the year 2007. Printed in a tiny font and arrayed in two seemingly endless columns, these conflicts fill a mind-boggling twenty-two pages. The book is printed on accordion folded decorative paper, an uncomfortable reminder that the refinements of civilization are inseparably bound up with brutality.   This third edition comes in a plastic slipcase and includes a printed statement by the artist.
