Guest editor, Sarah Hulsey, worked with the idea of translation as a metaphor for the CODEX Papers IV journal. She says, "The articles in this volume approach the notion of translation from many directions, including translation as metaphor for alteration, transformation of an idea into an embodied form, interpretation of an experience into another mode, and, of course, translation between languages. The medium of artist books lends itself to ideas of translation on virtually every level, so it is a rich area of inquiry."

In this issue, Daniel Mellis writes about his recent publication Tango with Cows: Translation, Facsimile, and Commentary, which translates the poetry of Vasily Kamensky (in collaboration with poet Eugene Ostashevsky). Patricia Lagarde presents an essay based on her 2022 CODEX Symposium lecture, presented here in both English and the original Spanish, from her project Moon Archive. John DeMerritt discusses the publishing program of DeMerritt | Pauwels Editions, an imprint that focuses on using the handmade book object to bring an idea into object form. Tatjana Bergelts epistolary discussion with noted Nabokov scholar Stephen Blackwell gives us new and thought-provoking ways to understand Bergelts book Pas de Deux, an artist book that explores Vladimir Nabokovs passion for butterflies. Matvei Yankelvich considers Curb by Aaron Cohick and ways in which the physical properties of the book enhance the effects of the powerful poetry by Divya Victor. Robert Bringhurst, has contributed his moving and wide-ranging 2022 CODEX Symposium keynote address, in which he examines relationships between languages and scripts, and what both contribute to literature, and, more broadly, to civilization. Amanda Marchand guides us through a visit to Datz, the South Korean publisher, residency, and museum, with a photo essay about this impressive enterprise. And, lastly, we have three thoughtful and insightful reviews of books: Laurie Whitehill on elude by Jule Claudia Mahn of Verwandte Objekte; Molly Schwartzburg on Dead Life by Clifton Meador of Studio of Exhaustion; and Stephanie Stillo on Hellmap Atlas by Didier Mutel and Peter Koch.
