Somewhere Else. Sarah Plimpton.

Somewhere Else.

[New York: 2003]. One of 20 copies, each signed in pencil by the author / artist and hand-numbered on the colophon, all on Magnagni Pescia cream paper. Page size: 10-5/8 x 7-5/8"; 20pp. Bound: loose folios in original putty-colored Twinrocker rustler handmade paper wrappers printed in black; housed in salmon-colored cloth clamshell box by Claudia Cohen. Printed letterpress in Garamond light in 18pt. at The Grenfell Press in New York by the artist / author. Each page is double-spread with the text going across both pages enfolded by the abstract images. The images are original lino cuts for the gray and woodcuts for the black, editioned by the author with the assistance of Leslie Miller at The Grenfell Press. This is a beautiful book with the black images floating on top of the gray lino cuts, giving a depth to the page that is completely unexpected. The poem leads the viewer / reader to reflect on what is really seen, light distortion, and ultimately what is real. The letterpress text and original graphic art lead the viewer / reader to the same reflection. This is a fascinating confluence of word and image - deceptively simple and elegant. Item #9246
