About this Item

The second book from this Venice CA fine press features twelve poems by Mr Schwartz that explore universal themes of life and death through the traditions and customs of the Jewish faith. He draws upon the rich legends and stories of the Jewish people that he has explored in his varied works.Los Angeles artist Kathy GuraČÛªs pencil drawing -- a pottery vessel in four states -- was printed from magnesium plates using chine colle. The vessels were printed in four colors onto Gampi paper layered over a color field. The colors were chosen to complement the rich jewel colors mentioned in the poems.The text paper is a handmade hemp paper from the Ruscombe Paper Mill in France. The text is hand set in Monotype Pastonchi and the title in Calligraphia. The hand binding, to a design by Allwyn OČÛªMara, has exposed sewing over boards covered in a vibrant red and gold Japanese book cloth.Shulamis Press, an imprint of The Garlow Studio, publishes fine press editions of traditional and new Jewish literature.
