The Chinese Painting
by Mary Wehner
This contemplative, early-morning poem, written at the edge of a lake in Wisconsin, evokes that pensive and peaceful moment at sunrise treasured by many.
Birmingham artist Jane Marshall has studied the forms and habits of swans, the leading characters here, and gives us two drawings—sketches really—loose and full of motion.
A poem broadside, handmade by Steve Miller in an edition of seventy-five copies, signed by the author, Fall 2003. The Perpetua types and line drawings are printed in three colors on a Vandercook proof press using photopolymer printing plates on slightly dampened Frankfurt Cream mouldmade paper, 8.5" by 15". $25.00, plus $5.00 shipping.
