First edition of these 10 prose poems. The hand-set type is Monotype Garamont 248, printed on a Vandercook Universal I press. The paper is Zerkall Book. The artwork, letterpress-printed from type-high magnesium photo-engravings, was created by the printer from a detail of an original Edo period Zen Buddhist hanging scroll: a negative mirror image in red for the title page, the original sumi-e ink design in black following the title poem, and an overlapping image at the center of the book. 60 copies signed by the poet and printer, roman numeral I-X reserved for the poet and the printer and copies numbered 1-50 are for sale. Note: The books colophon describes the verse type as Monotype Garamond. More accurately, it is the Monotype version of Garamond called Garamont 248.
