This is a generous selection of fifty-five poems, written between 1977 and 2011, by Jorie Graham. She is in the front rank of American poets and the recipient of many prizes, including the Pulitzer Prize, and a MacArthur Fellowship.
The book contains sixteen color relief prints by Julian Lethbridge. As described by the artist’s gallery, “Lethbridge's abstraction is cerebral, often based on mathematical or natural principles. Methodically building up his surfaces with pigment, he then incises them with repeated patterns. Early in his career, Lethbridge limited his work to shades of black and white. More recently he has begun to introduce vibrant colors and more gestural brushwork.” Further information may be viewed here: http://arionpress.com/catalog/101.htm
In addition to the sixteen prints in the book, Julian Lethbridge has created four larger prints by the same techniques. These prints follow the same four color combinations. Further information about the suite of prints may be viewed in the link provided above.
