Glenview, Illinois: Karen Hanmer, 2018. Edition of 30.
Karen Hanmer: "From Access Hollywood through the Mueller investigation to white nationalist support, #Great Again #Believe Me documents contemporary American personalities, pronouncements, slogans, scandals, policies and crimes, complemented by the metaphor of a deconstructing US Capitol."
Robert Gore, UCLA Arts Library: "#Great Again #Believe Me shows Karen Hanmer once again being a 'first responder' to current events. Students in my introductory book arts class were interested in how the structure of the book could change at a moment’s notice, reflecting the transitory nature of our #hashtag world. A book to spark discussion and debate!"
