Hanga woodcut by Bill Paden. First edition of this poem in memory of Eshlemans close friend, the artist Bill Paden (1930-2004), who studied Hanga print technique in Kyoto, Japan, where he lived from 1963 to 1968. The type is Golgonooza-cast Monotype Garamont 248, hand-set by David and Jonathan Sellers, and printed on Somerset Book Wove paper. Each woodcut is numbered and signed by the artist, the Western master of the form. The edition comprises 50 numbered copies, 1-15 reserved and 16-50 for sale, each signed by the poet and the printer. Note: The books colophon describes the verse type as Monotype Garamond. More accurately, it is the Monotype version of Garamond called Garamont 248.
