What A Word Dreamt: Versions of Aztec Poetry
Peter Everwine. What a Word Dreamt: Versions of Aztec Poetry. 84 pp. (7.5" x 13.5") Thanksgiving 2005. 136 copies of this book are printed from 14 and 16 point Bembo types. A 24 point Blado header and footer of some of the original Nahuatl text run through the book in red. The paper is Magnani,, an Italian mould-made paper. The binding, especially designed by C. Mikal Oness and Julia Leonard, was executed by Julia Leonard in Iowa City. The intricate design of the binding allows the book to open flat without using an overly ostentatious or "arty" structure, thus keeping the verbal text in the forefront of the production. The book was designed and printed by C. Mikal Oness with assistance from the 2005 Alpenhouse Fellow, Zachary Carlsen. $460.
