Whipstock.
Tallahassee, Florida:: AB Gorham,, 2014.. Edition of 40. 6 x 6.25"; 36 pages. Letterpress printed on handmade cotton/abaca paper. Laid in a Japanese two-flap hard cover with title (once incised, once printed) on two flaps. Printed at the Small Craft Advisory Press. Numbered.. AB Gorham: "An attempt to understand the lore spun throughout lifetimes spent in the oil patches, courthouses and other haunts of the oil and gas industry, Whipstock manages the iconoclast of the landman, the grid of Township and Range used to identify tracts of land, as well as the more organic and inorganic forms that comprise the actual physical landscape. Paging through the book, the act of unfolding the folios creates a series of shifting views, a slow exposure of this complicated concept." Laid out in a shifting grid, Gorham's poetic text and the book's simple but elaborate structure reinforce the straightforward complexity of a time and place.
