Amelia Bird – Walden Marginalia


© 2012
edition of 50
9.5 x 6 x.25


This artist’s book examines marginalia found in twelve copies of Walden and provides commentary on the reading habits of strangers, assumptions about nature writing and learning, and the lingering effects of Thoreau’s classic work. By withholding the original text to focus solely on margin notes, Walden Marginalia turns the same kind of close attention Thoreau inspired in his readers onto the readers themselves.

Letterpress printed with photopolymer plates and hand-set Scotch Roman and Bodoni types. Case binding.
