New books!

Pictures of Mary's recent books: the Paul Valery cover is made from a recycled American Poetry Review (who doesn't like cutting up that rag?). And "Tragedy" is the first of a series of blank books based on a poem titled "Double."

8x6", 24 pages (blank); hardcover with coptic binding.







Detail of cover. Lama li (handmade Nepalese paper) + handcut and engraved insulating tape.



Detail of Valery cover. 6 1/2 x 8 1/4", 20 pages (blank), hardcover Japanese stab binding. Recycled American Poetry Review+ newsprint.

Fantastic books--My old APR covers are in the mail to you---Good luck. It's kind of hard to explain to people how one can be so passionate about a piece of heavy machinery but your Vandercook looks beautiful. Can't wait to see it upfront.
