Poems, 1970-1971.

Cox, Morris (illus.)

(London): Gogmagog Press, 1972. Octavo. (96)pp., frenchfold. One of fifty copies signed by the printer-author. Illustrated with eight original intaglio engravings by Cox, printed in colors. "Each print has the device of a hand with pen or brush, entering from beyond the margins, drawing its composition (poem or picture) from nature." The whole is printed on Japanese mulberry paper, with titles and initials in red. The visual shape of the poems and the juxtaposition of words is part of Cox' s somewhat surrealist work. Cox plays with word associations and palindromes to create this "book of extremes." Some foxing and toning to edges of text block, else a near fine copy in black boards covered in Japanese net-mesh handmade paper. Item #30294

(Chambers 22).

Price: $500.00
