About this title

Synopsis:

My Black Angel, Blues Poems and Portraits pairs the blues poems of Kim Addonizio with woodcut effigies based on images of a number of significiant blues musicians with the intent of creating “duets” of image and text, each spread becoming a visual composition and each element amplifying the other.

Created by Charles D. Jones, the woodcuts are in direct response to the poetry. The limited edition book features 24 poems and 26 images printed directly from wooden blocks on Hahnemühle’s Biblio paper, with additional images for the delux edition printed onto Sekishu, a fine Japanese paper. Jones uses the Optima font, printing from photopolymer plates.
