Island: Journal from Iceland.

Santa Barbara, CA: Simplemente Maria Press, 2010. Heebner, Mary. Quarto. (13)ff. One of sixty copies. Signed by the artist at colophon, as well as on verso of each pigment print. The prints have been hand-touched with watercolor and are individually enclosed in over-beaten abaca paper folios on which twelve poems by Inge Bruggeman have been printed letterpress. The result is poetic topography, in which the reader encounters an impressionistic Icelandic landscape while grounded in verses describing locations like Vik, Skáldareitur, and Landmannalaugar. It presents a fragile, multidimensional journey that inducts the reader into his or her own Icelandic mythology. Folios held in a Kyoseishi and Kozo paper chemise, within a plexiglass slipcase. Mint. Item #30023
