Three Poems from The Bridge
[Bremen, ME: Red Angel Press]. 2004. Limited Edition, signed by the artist and designer, Ron Keller, one of 100 copies, the poetry on Saunders Waterford paper and the title page and illustrations on Sekishu. Page size: 12-1/2 inches x 7-1/2 inches, oblong octavo. Bound: beige linen cloth with painted silver lines resembling cables of Brooklyn Bridge. Text hand set and printed letterpress in American Garamond 648 for the poetry, Garamont Italic for the text and Caslon 471 for the title. The text is printed in black and the title page and colophon in a gray green. Keller has chosen to reprint three poems that strongly use the imagery of the Brooklyn Bridge. The book is presented in a horizontal format reflective of the span of the bridge. The first two poems, "Cutty Sark" and "Atlantis" are illustrated with three relief print images of the bridge's interesting stone arches and steel suspension cables. These images are each printed in six colors in a style reminiscent of early 20th century poster graphics. The third poem, "To Brooklyn Bridge" is printed on four hinged leaves that extend to 42 inches when opened. This poems typographic layout forms the bridge's roadway and is bordered by a depiction of the suspension cables - the poet's "choiring strings!" - that rise up from the pages when opened. An elaborate and imaginative design from Red Angel Press honoring one of New York's most recognizable landmarks.
