Arctic Trilogy.

Heebner, Mary (illus.)

Santa Barbara, CA: Simplemente Maria Press, 2024. Three quarto vols. Each one of fifteen copies, and each signed by Mary Heebner at the colophon. A trio of Heebner's concerned meditations on the perilous status of the arctic landscape, based on two ship voyages undertaken in 2017 and 2023. In two volumes under the single title of Vanishing Tracks, Heebner mourns the current ephemerality of the polar bear. In Arctic Light, she narrates her experiences as visitor to and observer of the terrain, while impressing upon the reader how beautiful it all is, "more so knowing that it is leaving us." In Frazil: New Ice Forming, in terms both metaphorical and directly scientific she considers the regenerative cycle of water and ice and that cycle's frightening fragility. "Who will remember the ice?" she asks. Each book accordion-fold, with Heebner's prints throughout embellished by hand with pigment and ink. Text printed letterpress. Each book housed in a chemise with hand-painted covers. An emotional set, layered materially, artistically, and structurally. Very fine. Held in tripartite acrylic slipcase. Item #33418
