has produced a small edition
carol blinn of warwick press
provided typographic expertise
and, let's be honest,
the encouragement for me to have
build two boxes for these books.
each book now lives
in a lovely soft, barely gold box
with carol's title page and colophon--
and are now,
there are several gatefolds
so the book stands alone
as a map of my ecotone, new york's north country
plants, metals, fungi,
and mineral laden water.
(secrets and truths about here)
showing off the structure
and i show off the title on the box spine.
cave paper covers,
presentation box by mark tomlinson,
typographic design by carol j blinn,
a plethora of ecoprinted arches velin (text wove) papers
printed in the cold seasons before,
bound in autumn of 2013,
and ready in june 2014.
