This book began in 2007 when Glenn Goldberg collaborated with master printer Julia D’Amario at the Sitka Center for Art & Ecology. During an intensive and rainy 2 weeks, they created the 8 plates for these images, which were then editioned as individual prints. After securing permission from Sitka to use the plates for a future book project, the search was on to find poetry that would compliment and challenge Glenn’s work. We were thrilled to discover, and ultimately use, the work of Edward Hirsch.
The etchings were printed by Julia D’Amario, with additional pochoir in watercolor and gouache applied by Ruth Lingen and John Bartlett. All stencils were cut by Shannon Kelley.
The type is handset Stephenson & Blake Modern No. 20, with a bit of ATF Law Italic and Modern No. 596. All typography and letterpress printing by Ruth Lingen.
The paper is Zerkall, with end sheets hand-stenciled from a drawing by the artist.
The edition was bound by Mark Tomlinson, using Japanese cloth and German buckram, in an edition of 30 plus 9 artist proofs.
