Wandering (2011) T. S. Eliott. 7 by 5 inches. The text is an excerpt from Eliott's poem "Four Quartets". This book was made in Lafayette, Colorado while we were teaching a class for the Book Arts League. It was letterpress printed on Peter's handmade paper (light umber with black fiber flecks) using an unidentified type face and a linoleum cut of a gypsy wagon that was carved by Donna for this book. The binding is a variation on our flap page binding, with 3 sheets folded and sewn over a wooden dowel. The cover and endpapers were letterpress printed on old USGS topographic maps using wood and metal type, printers' ornaments and Donna's linoleum cut. When the flap pages are folded back an illustration (cut by Donna during the class) is revealed. 12 pages. 14 copies (7 available for sale). $195.
