(Arion Press)

Eureka, a Prose Poem, an Essay on the Material and Spiritual Universe.

Arakawa Shusaku (illus.)

San Francisco: Arion Press, 1991. Quarto. ix, 109pp. One of 250 copies, signed by the artist Arakawa, who has illustrated the book with eight double-page prints. The illustrations overlay textual and linear elements. The quotations from Poe are crossed out and underlined, obscured and emphasized; vectors powerfully point to and away from points of meaning; curves connect and release cognition; abstractions push and pull between the symbolic and concrete. Set by Andrew Hoyem with the cooperation of the artist, known for his Conceptual, Minimalist, and DuChampian style. Bound in grey-flecked, rose-colored cloth, with the title, press, and author printed in an acrostic on the covers. Very fine. Prospectus laid-in. Item #28484

Price: $300.00
