SOUNDINGS: Journal. William Everson.


Santa Barbara: University of California, (1976). First edition. Vol VIII, No. 2, December 1976. Includes an article on printing by Everson. ASSOCIATION COPY INSCRIBED BY EVERSON TO HIS FRIEND AND BIOGRAPHER, LEE BARTLETT. In addition to Everson's article, "The Poem as Icon--Reflections on Printing as a Fine Art," there are several photos of him and a page from "Privacy of Speech." The article is introduced by Kenneth Rexroth. In it Everson discusses how and why he printed books in certain ways, including "Granite and Cypress," among others, and how other printers have not been consistent to the poet's desired line lengths and breaks. Everson declares "The Book of Kells" to be "the most beautiful book ever made." Near fine with just a bit of soiling on the cover.
