Above, a scan of Art Speigelman's "9/11/01." As Spiegelman explains, this image "can really be seen only in its printed form." The towers of the World Trade Center, "printed in a fifth, black ink, on a field of black made up of the standard four color printing ink," might be barely visible on your screen.

Just to let you know, the pure black Twin Towers on the four-color black background is visible on my 15" PowerBook G4. But on my 21" flat panel screen running XP at the highest resolution, nada. Perfectly evenly black.

Norman, I see the Towers with only one of the three computers I use -- desktop with large flat-panel screen, yes; two laptops, no.
