About This Item

New York: Granary Books, 1992. Signed Limited First Edition. Fine. First edition. An artist's book containing drawn and painted images by Timothy C. Ely, set against text written by Terence McKenna, with typography by Philip Gallo. From a limited edition of only 75 copies, signed by McKenna and Ely. Of those 75, there were 55 numbered copies and 20 hors commerce copies lettered G-Z, and this is copy letter O. Pages printed letterpress on Rives BFK in pairs on single leaves, wrapped around and pasted onto thick card stock and adorned with original watercolor paintings by Ely; sewn binding with brass rods securing textblock to black embossed paper-covered boards with decorative brass piece affixed to upper board, housed in original black cloth chemise case with printed paper title label to spine. Fine. In 1991, McKenna visited an exhibition at Granary Books featuring Ely's work, and this collaboration would result. A fantastic push and pull of Gallo's refined typography set against Ely's abstract watercolor, offering a visual landscape for the eye to wander, perfectly paired with McKenna's text on broad themes such as art, language, history and nature.
