Letterpress Book (softcover): The Little Book of a Thousand Eyes

Book: The Little Book of a Thousand Eyes, by Lyn Hejinian. Publisher: Smokeproof Press. Interior spread.

 

This piece was work. Lots of it. Limited edition of 50 copies, 40 softcover, 10 hardcover. Handset and printed on dampened sheets, handsewn & handbound, 48pp. long. I typeset and printed this book after immersing myself in William Everson's essays on printing, and am forever thankful for those inspiring and nurturing passages. He helped me find the contemplative pleasures of an extended labor.

 

Cover artwork is an visual response to a reading of the text by Jesse Paul Miller (www.jessepaulmiller.com/), a fantastic interdisciplinary artist living in Seattle.
