Limited to forty numbered copies (but 41 copies). Authored by John Coy, with illustrations and printing achieved by Gaylord Schanilec of Midnight Paper Sales. What is considered a Children's Book, My Mighty Journey is a 12,000 year journey of Saint Anthony's Falls from St. Paul to its current home in Minneapolis. Additional illustrations and printing by Paul Nylander and Barbara Eijadi, Sorcha Douglas, Emily Pressprich, Greta Lapcinski, Paris Fobbe, Rayan Macalin, Kerri Mulcare, Ellen Janda, & Hans Koch. An impressive collaboration with figureheads from the fine press world.

The materials for the illustrations were formed into blocks from pieces of driftwood along the Mississippi River. Mohawk Superfine Paper was used in the printing, handset in ATF Berhard Gothic foundry type. Cover art by Amanda Degener.

An absolutely monumental achievement by Gaylord Schanilec.
