On Veterans Day

The Goofein Journal is a faux newspaper, hand-lettered on cardstock, written and illustrated for an audience of one. The newspaper is the work of Marion Reh Gurfein, who sent twenty-one issues to her husband Joseph when he served in the Second World War and the Korean War.

[In 2014 Marion Reh Gurfein, then ninety-three, was interviewed about making art and living with macular degeneration. I hope that she’s still going strong.]
