About This Item

Octon, France: Verdigris Press, 2002. One of 30 copies all on Hahnemulhe paper, each signed by the artist and the poet on the colophon page. The first eight copies have an original copper plate as well as an additional mezzotint and a text in the hand of the author. Page size: 15-1/2 x 10-1/4"; 10 double-fold leaves. Bound: publisher's wrappers in aubergine Canevas paper by Thibierge & Comar screen-printed in black by the artist, matching screen-printed slipcase with wood edges by Claude Vallin and Mark Lintott. The eight mezzotints (nine plates) and the two embossments on the title and contents page were printed by the artist. The text is hand-set in Vendome Romain and printed letterpress on a Stanhope press by Mark Lintott, fine. This is the third collaboration between poet, Ruth Fainlight, and artist, Judith Rothchild. The poems inspired by the feather images and the mezzotints inspired by the poems, form an ongoing dialogue.
