Of a Sharp-Shinned Hawk, Needle & Thread
A poem by Allison Dubinsky
is now available to purchase
Measuring a little over a palm's width, reading this, holding it in your hands is an intimate experience.
The themes of the narrative weave in and out of each other in this poem, and are reflected subtly in the book's structure; the black thread sewn along the spine, the leaves of the pages unfolding outward, the wood type beckoning you to "open."
All of the text was handset in Bembo 11/12 pt., Bernhard Gothic medium 10 pt., and 12 and 10 line gothic wood type. The illustration is one of the author's, and was printed from a photopolymer plate.
It was such a pleasure to work on this book. Thank you, Allison, for entrusting me with your words.
