Dig & Delve
New York: Granary Books, 1999. First Edition. Cloth. Fine. Trevor Winkfield. Printed by master printer Ruth Lingen. Her copy, number 55/67. Signed on the colophon by the author and illustrator.Described by its publisher as a postmodern illustrated book a perfect passport to the new millenium, Dig & Delve is a collaboration between American poet Larry Fagin (text) and English writer and artist Trevor Winkfield (images and designs).Peter Schjeldahl notes that Fagin explores the possibilities of poetry as an activity, like the theater or a sport, where each act is a unique performance demanding nerve and guile. The poems that result are as lean and snappy as terriers, and just as much fun. Fagins surreal, Rimbaud-like prose poem is delightfully and joyously augmented by Winkfields clean, spare artwork, with the finished product mimicking a bright childrens board book.The book was typeset largely by Ruth Lingen with assistance from Barbara Henry; it was letterpress printed, including the cloth cover, by Lingen. This volume is notable for its superior printing, including the crispness and purity of the books vibrant colors.When will the book be done, 82-83.Of an edition of 67 copies signed by both author and artist, 50 were for sale and 17 were hors commerce. Bound dos rapporté by Judith Ivry with hand-printed cloth over boards. 18 pp. 26.4cm x 22cm.
