Species of Light

bellywater press, 2004

Species of Light is a limited-edition, hand-printed chapbook carried out in collaboration with printmaker Sarah Noble. Noble’s fantastical linocuts bring a strange and delicate beauty to the prose poem sequence. Type for the book was set for a tabletop letterpress using Garamond Light Condensed 11/14 typeface. The chapbook was hand assembled with Nepalese Lokta and German printed paper.
