The Cold Dancer

 

Accordion book, rubber-roller printed on plain wallpaper, with transparent paper front part-cover and cord fastening. 18 pages. 28x12 cm.

 

The text is a poem - A Reel Of Seven Fishermen (bride, mother, fisherman) - by Orkney poet George Mackay Brown. Using rubber stamp lettering, I hand-set Mackay Brown's words, conveying the raw power and violence of the sea, to contrast sharply with the playful naivety of the boat image.

 

One-off edition, not available for purchase.
