Poestenkill, NY: Kaldewey Press, 1989. Kaldewey, Gunnar. Oblong folio. 106pp. One of twenty deluxe copies printed on papier de Chine and bound in flexible blue textured leather by Christian Zwang. With twenty-five linoleum cuts in several colors by Kim Keever. Signed by the artist. Keever's linocuts draw directly from the theme of love, with imagery of women and men and handwritten text. These are displayed to greatest effect in this deluxe edition, as the translucent Chinese paper allows the text and images to show through. Designed and printed by Gunnar Kaldewey, who combines the traditional with the experimental, bringing together the work of an early twentieth-century poet with the techniques and ideas of the late twentieth-century artist. In this work, Kaldewey utilizes an inventive index format in which the pages for each poem are one inch wider than the poem before, allowing for each section to be accessed easily and directly. The title page, as it were, is printed letter by letter across these tabs. Housed in a grey chemise and slipcase. Very fine. Item #27071
