Change. Sarah Plimpton.


[New York, NY]: 2017. Artist's book, one of 10 copies, all on Somerset paper, all numbered and signed by the author / artist, Sarah Plimpton. Page size: 8-3/4 x 5-7/8 inches; 20pp. Bound: loose in original tan wrappers blind debossed with title and author / artist's name, housed in terracotta cloth over boards clamshell box by Claudia Cohen, tan paper on spine printed in gold with title and author / artist's name, Sarah Plimpton. The poem is set in Officina Sans and printed in grey by The Grenfell Press. Ms. Plimpton's edgy etchings are in terracotta, editioned by Peter Pettengill and proofed by the artist at Manhattan Graphics Center. The thin arabesques highlight - as well as enfold - the 2 or three words per page. The verse opens, "the sky / has changed / the light" and ends, "watch while you can / the light is right". The reader / viewer has the impression of sea and irregular coast and how varied and magical the sea and reflected light can be. Capturing the pleasure and profound harmony of this experience in simple words and lines is what Ms. Plimpton does best. The admonition in her words is worthy of contemplation. Item #11303
