Teresa Pankratz: "This paper doll string of cookies was created in response to the 9/11 terrorist attacks. An earlier edition was included in [my] holiday greetings at the end of the year 2000."
Text printed across pages shaped like a gingerbread man whose head is progressively chomped until only a smile remains: "Life is very unpredictable / so perhaps the best solution / is to keep smiling to the end."
