A Butterfly Careless
Belfast, ME: Dudley Zopp, [2001]. Number 124 of 175 copies. Signed by the author and artist. "A Butterfly Careless" includes 37 haiku-like poems by Andrew Gay and four monotypes by artist Dudley Zopp. The two met during meetings of a local writers' group, and discovered they had similar artistic interests. "I think he wanted to talk to me about doing the book because my sensibilities about the natural world were similar to his," Zopp said. "He was just so very intensely involved with people and with the natural world." Gay, both a physician and poet, died in 2004 and Zopp's words are taken from his obituary. Ms. Zopp graduated from the University of Kentucky with a B.A. and M.A. and completed postgraduate studies in Drawing and Painting at the Hite Art Institute, University of Louisville. She now lives in Lincolnville, Maine. Zopp finds inspiration in geological processes and cultural histories of place. Her engagement with restoring habitat where she lives feeds directly into her work, which ranges from site specific installations to paintings, woodcuts and limited edition books. Poems typeset in Dante and printed on Mohawk Ultrafelt Text paper. Images from original ink monotypes are printed as offset duotones. Printed at the renowned Stinehower Press in Lunenburg, VT. Bound in a green Fabriano Ingres paper with title in black. Housed in a tan cloth slipcase with an original monotype laid into a debossed panel. A lovely book in fine condition. 7 x 7 inches. Unpaginated. PRI/111517.
