  • Quantity available: 2
Tacoma, Washington:: Springtide Press,, 2002.. Edition of 15. 15.125 x 20", single sheet broadside. Printed letterpress in Escrita on handmade paper. Jessica Spring: "Ginger was brought by Arabs to the Greeks and Romans, who believed it grew in the land of the Troglodytes - people who lived on the edge of the earth. Marco Polo recorded cultivated ginger throughout China. The Portuguese grew ginger in West Africa and fed it to men in slave gangs, hoping the aphrodisiac would boost population and productivity. "One of the oldest spices, ginger is mentioned in the Talmud and the Bible. The Koran celebrates ginger as one of the two aromatics of the next world.

  • Edition: Edition of 15
  • Quantity available: 1
Tacoma, Washington:: Springtide Press,, 2002.. Edition of 15. 15.125 x 20" Single sheet broadside. Printed letterpress on handmade paper using Caslon typeface. This broadside recounts the convoluted tale of how nutmeg, more precious than gold in 17th-century Europe, played a major role in England's prominence in the New World. Jessica Spring: "The nutmeg tree produces fruit which can be boiled for jam. Inside is a core or 'nut' covered with a crimson, lacy covering called an aril. This is removed from the nut and dried in the sun to produce mace, which has a light, delicate flavor. The core inside is also dried, then cracked open to extract the nutmeg, which is best used when freshly grated. "Dutch traders used a lime solution to sterilize nuts before export to protect their monopoly. Transportation was further complicated by the trees' gender: male and female varieties are difficult to identify and at least one male tree is required for every seven females to ... Read more

The Orchard

[Springtide Press] by Saadi Yousef.

  • Edition: Edition of 55
  • Quantity available: 1
Tacoma, Washington:: Springtide Press,, 2007.. Edition of 55. 14 x 17.5", single sheet. Letterpress printed on Japanese paper in Legend font. This broadside printed by Jessica Spring was a result of the Al-Mutannabi Street Broadside Project. The project was "A Call to Action for Letterpress Printers! To protest & commemorate the bombing of al-Mutanabbi Street, the centre of bookselling in Baghdad, on March 5th 2007." (http://www.bookarts.uwe.ac.uk/mutan209.htm) Jessica Spring: "'The Orchard" by Saadi Yousef suggested a beautiful, ephemeral place to me. For this piece I chose some impossibly delicate Japanese paper, probably not intended to print on but rather to wrap up ceramics or something more utilitarian. Combined with an Art Nouveau wood border, the color, fragility and occasional papermaker's tears seemed just right for the poem. For the type I used Legend for its calligraphic feel, though I wrestled over the choice – the font is seen so much on everyt... Read more

For the first time ever, the piece is printed on rich, deep black paper — which makes the brilliant metallic gold of the quote pop into focus. Surrounding the text is an intricate metallic silver filigree of spring botanicals and portraiture, creating a pastiche of the subjects of some of Imogen Cunningham's most iconic photographs.
