Nicholas was born on April 2, 1986. His daddy was smitten and over the moon with joy.On that very day he carefully wrapped a NewYork Times from the very day of Nick’s birth, where it was stored in a closet, forgotten. Behold the Modern artifact.!!
This image of the The New York Times is graphically wonderful, and the front page tells the story of a young man’s first day of life in the world around him. I think it looks fabulous-striking and evocative. It holds great provenance for the father and mother and now hangs in Nick’s home, a reminder of his dad’s love for him. Getting that newspaper out of a box, to be forgotten and probably discarded, where it became art for a family to love, was a wonderful choice for this family.
