Ingmire, Thomas (illus.)

(San Francisco): 2010. Manuscript on paper. Small quarto. 12ff. In the colophon for this work, Ingmire notes that this work grew from an earlier collaboration involving his calligraphic interpretation of Lorca's poetry and original art by Manuel Neri. Where that earlier project treated what Ingmire calls Lorca's "more despairing poetry," this selection of four poems from Lorca's sequence of brief poems centered upon moments of experience takes a decidedly lighter tone. Ingmire's calligraphic interpretation is accompanied by his own original watercolor drawings, which, while tending toward the abstract, nevertheless possess a simplicity of form that, like lettering, enable the viewer to discern familiar shapes suggested by the text. In a backless binding of paper wrappers featuring bold geometric designs in watercolor incorporating two collage elements; housed in a pulp painted paper chemise and lettered wrap-around band.
