The Arion Press is proud to announce the publication of Stone from Delphi, a collection of poems by the late Seamus Heaney (1939-2013) on classical themes, selected and with an introduction by the noted critic Helen Vendler, with sixteen watercolor drawings by Wendy Artin. The classical past is fundamental to the work of this great contemporary poet, the winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1995, who, like James Joyce before him, illuminates his times and his own psyche through the lens of antiquity. Artin’s watercolor drawings, done especially for this book, were made from Greek and Roman statues whose subjects appear in Heaney’s writings. The drawings are reproduced in the edition at same size. The edition is limited to 300 numbered copies for sale; all copies are SIGNED by the poet and the artist. The book is small folio in format, 11-5/8 by 8-3/8 inches, 120 pages, plus 16 unnumbered leaves for the illustrations, a total of 152 pages. The paper is German mould-made Schiller. The text types are Poliphilus roman and Blado italic, based on typefaces of Aldus Manutius. The book is presented in a slipcase. Bookseller Inventory #
