Middletown, Connecticut: Robin Price, 2005. First edition. First separate publication of Bloom's short story which first appeared in Ms. magazine. Number 37 of 125 copies SIGNED BY BLOOM, TIERNEY, & PRICE. This copy additionally inscribed "this copy for Allen K. Mears" on colophon by Price who designed, letterpress printed, and bound the book by hand. A deceptively intricate publication with laminated suede cover illustrated with image burned in using a metal frame heated with a blowtorch and with interior produced using various papers, materials and techniques. ALSO INCLUDES original prospectus, invitation to the book-launch party at the Teacher's and Writers Collaborative in Manhattan, and correspondence from Price providing additional insight into the book's complex production. Fine.
