The manuscript for this book won the 2013 Poetry Chapbook Competition at The Center for Book Arts. The judges were Sharon Dolin and Harryette Mullen. Each poem was inspired by a line from A.C. Balwin's 1853 compendium The Traveler's Vade Mecum, a list of over 8,000 phrases to be referenced by number, creating a code for conversation over long distances. Set in Monotype Bodoni and Grasset types, both cast in house at Swamp Press. Presswork executed on a Heidelberg Windmill and Vandercook Universal I. Text printed on Canaletto paper; the covers are St. Armand Canal Sisal and Hahnemühle Bugra Bütten. Linocut cover illustration by Barbara Henry of Harsimus Press. Limited edition of 100.
