Signed by the artist and writer. Numbered. Thorsten Dennerline: "This book is the 12th book by The Bird Press. Each project is an attempt to experiment with the book format using hand processes and good quality materials." Colophon: "The papers are handmade from Saint Armand Papeterie in Montreal, Canada, that were first printed by the artist seven times each on an Okuma flatbed offset proofing press with lithographic plates at Working Dog Press in Whately, Massachusetts. The sheets were then printed from hand drawn lithographic stones and etching plates at Bennington College Print Studios in Bennington, Vermont also by the artist. Daniel Keleher did the final casting and printing of the Granjon Linotype at Wild Carrot Letterpress in Hadley, Massachusetts." Mark Wunderlich: "In early 2013, Thorsten Dennerline approached me about collaborating on an artist's book. The process we agreed on was one in which I received a maquette of the book with the photographic images, and in response to the images and the limitations of these pages, I wrote a poem. Several months into our collaboration, my nephew died. He was twenty-one. At that point, the initial ideas I had for the work no longer seemed possible, and the poem became a meditation on my nephew's absence. Thorsten's photographs initially struck me as both hopeful and rather lonely; after my nephew's death, the places one sees in the photographs were now inhabited by a ghost." Thorsten Dennerline: " The project started when I approached Mark about making a book together. I then asked him to work from a series of edited photographs that were folded into a mock up/maquette. The photographs were folded into thirds and attached together into an concertina/accordion format. The agreement was that he could write anything he wanted knowing that I, in turn, would be working over the photographs as well. The poem and images were later joined together within the final book format. This allowed both of us the total freedom to work independently, but knowing that the meaning of our gestures would eventually be altered by the other's contributions.
