PRINTERS COMMENTS: "I printed this first book in Harry Duncan's class at the University of Nebraska at Omaha. In 1978 Harry offered his first night class since coming to the University in 1972. I jumped at the chance to take the class. It was what I had been waiting for. I had purchased my Washington hand press in 1964. .... At this time I knew nothing about what it took to produce a book. The Washington press used for this book was one of two in the University's shop. ... I remember printing the last signature on the last day of class before Christmas vacation in 1978. The book was bound by Zonne Book Binders in Chicago. .... Clark Olmstead, the author, is an interesting individual. ... By day he was a routeman for the Frito-Lay Company. I had to have a project for the class at the University and in conversation one day with Clark, it was agreed that I would use a collection of his verse." ...
