Zevi Blum - When I Did Not Die

  When I Did Not Die
            by artist Zevi Blum & poet Judith Levey-Kurlander 

Zevi Blum


As the first of the H. Peter Kahn Memorial books, 'When I Did Not Die" is a tribute to Peter Kahn as a book artist, calligrapher, teacher, and educator. The book pairs five etchings by Zevi Blum with five poems by Judith LeveyKurlander. Zevi and Judith were friends and neighbors in Ithaca for many years. While Zevi's etchings were originally conceived around the Renaissance theme of the "Dance of Death", the poems of the late Judith Levey-Kurlander were written during her time of illness. Both artists have found a voice around the theme of death, each facing the reality of dying in unique, optimistic, and complimentary ways.
