Additional notes:
The seven poems by Wislawa Szymborska chosen by William Kentridge for this book were translated from Polish by Clare Cavanagh and Stanislaw Baranczak. Twenty-two etchings, dry points, and photogravures were created for this edition by the artist and are bound into the book. A separate, signed and unbound photogravure is included in the edition. The images were hand printed by Randy Hemminghaus with the assistance of Paul Loughney and Kristen Cavagnet at Rutgers Center for Innovative Print and Paper. Ruth Lingen designed and printed the poems in 112 point Garamont and the titling in nineteenth century wood Gothic. The abaca and cotton handmade text and cover paper was developed and produced by Susan Gosin and Paul Wong at Dieu Donne Papermill, Inc. Barbara Mauriello designed and bound the 50 copies and 25 proofs. This edition is published by Dieu Donne Press in partnership with Galamander Press.
