  • " ... Richard Wilbur's evocative poem, has been made as a two part limited edition of 54 copies ... The full text has been printed letterpress by Charles Hobson on a Vandercook S-20 ... using polymer plates set in 14-point Courier on BFK Rives. These pages have been interleaved with vellum sheets printed with digital pigment prints and hand cut with the shapes of a starling in flight based on drawings by Charles Hobson. The accompanying flip book, or "flutter book", containing a selection of certain words from the poem, has been bound as an accordion and scored so as to permit viewing in an extended manner. The images in the flutter book have been made from cutouts using hand painted paper and selections of the text of the poem and printed as digital pigment prints on an Epson 2200 printer"--Colophon
  • The volume containing the full text has been bound in boards and covered with a cloth spine. It and the flutter book are contained in a fabric covered clamshell box which holds at its back a digital pigment print hand colored with pastel by the artist. Charles Hobson designed and assembled the edition with the assistance of Alice Shaw. John DeMerritt, with the assistance of Kris Langan, made the covers and the boxes"--Colophon
