India bond, link-stitch edition of Naming

Valentine’s Day 2004

Around 200 copies of Naming have been printed from Bembo types on dampened hand-made India Bond paper and bound between boards with a link-stich by Julia Leonard. The twenty-five fifteen-line sections that comprise this single long poem are printed recto with original calligraphic marks by Cheryl Jacobsen printed in blue on verso and along the end pages. 52 copies of this book are printed on Nideggen paper; these are bound in full cloth and lettered A-Z and aa-zz. Finally, a special edition of 13 copies of Naming is printed on Johannot, a French mouldmade paper. These copies are bound in a lap-component binding with blue leather on the spine and fore-edge and Fabriano Roma, a hand-made cover paper over the boards. These thirteen are lettered in Greek and housed in a black clamshell box made by Judi Conant.
