Santa Barbara, CA: Simplemente Maria Press, 2019. Heebner, Mary. Square octavo. (6)ff. booklet, + fourteen-panel accordion. One of twenty-five copies, signed by the illustrator, Mary Heebner, and the author, Stephen Kessler. The accordion pairs images from Heebner's collage series, Veiled/Unveiled, with lines of the poem "Cassandra," printed letterpress. The images are individually embellished with collage and pigment. The volume becomes, then, a tactile piece, complete yet fractured and unique, owing its unification to the artist's hand.
