Well, the files are out of our hands now. What an intense eight weeks!
You might notice two books here, both of which we were using to work out the details with Olympus Press. Our book will have the same size as For by Carol Snow, a poet long admired in these parts and just a perfect feeling book to hold. That other is one of the few books we found with a small page count and entirely in color, a very early Wave Books publication. This is a set of erasures (which mostly drive us to distraction, frustration and dagger eyes) by Mary Ruefle, A Little White Shadow, is laser-tight and a delight. It also helped us cross over the unknown of publishing an atypical and short page count.
Each of our collaboration books has a full color fold-out of the artist’s work space. Why? Because its something we’re always curious about and know our readers are too. Here are some shots from Nia Michaels’ studio that we liked, but didn’t make the cut for the back of Twelve Saints.
