About this piece:

The original material is on 11×17 sheets and would have been very cumbersome to read so the decision was made to make the book as a block book which allows the pages to lay flat without a gutter

The images were scanned from the original drawings and the poetry was printed letterpress from plates made from scans of the poet’s original holograph

In 2012, whilst at the Vermont Studio Center, Kwame Dawes saw a set of 24 Vallarta Drawings by Jon Gregg. he requested a photocopy set of them on 11×17 paper and subsequently wrote his poem directly on the sheets.
There is a separate chap book with the poems set in type


handmade papers, ink, wood
