43 According to Robin Price, with Annotated Bibliography
Robin Price, Publisher, Middletown, CT 2007 - Hardcover. Number 49 of 86 copies. Robin Price has designed, printed, and published books for over twenty-five years. Her works can be found in university and public library collections throughout North America and Europe. This book is particularly personal, as well as complex and mysterious. Ms. Price says that "Text excerpts from 86 books significant to me-mostly other artist's books-were gathered using formulas based on the number 43, which was my age at the genesis of the project." In her announcement for this book, she says that simple formulas, using modular arithmetic with the number 43, were applied to categories such as page number, paragraph, sentence, line of poetry, etc. The text is grouped by subject matter into sixteen page spreads. Titles of spreads include "Water," "Counting," and "Flora." Paper maps from locations along the 43rd parallels are bound in an accordion that structurally supports the main text, which is printed on graph paper and also hinged together as an accordion. A Legend Card and supplemental Annotated Bibliography are included. The unusual double-layer accordion is housed in an olive-green cloth-covered clamshell box with a river section printed in blue, and a map-paper spine label. The book was co-designed and co-produced with Daniel E. Kelm at the Wide Awake Garage. The typefaces are hand-set ATF Garamond and Kabel. Six colors are printed letterpress. All additional printing within the structure is also letterpress, except for the laser-printed text sheets of the 32 pp bibliography. 11.75 x 8 x 1.5 inches, opens to 20 ft wide; 32 pages with supplemental 32 pp booklet.
