Middletown, Connecticut: Robin Price, 2005. First edition, limited issue. Number 37 or 125 copies SIGNED BY AUTHOR, ARTIST, AND PRINTER/PUBLISHER. Robin Price designed, composed, printed it letterpress and hand bound the book. This copy was presented to Mears with Price's INSCRIPTION ON THE COLOPHON that states "this copy for Allen K. Mears." The green cover is made of soft Quinel brand suede that is laminated to a black Suedel Luxe material on the interior. The cover is illustrated with a pyrographic (burned in) image that was done with a blow-torch heated metal frame. Bloom's short story was first published by Ms. Magazine and later anthologized. The image making techniques and paper include Japanese handmade Okawara and Asarakusui paper, acetates, paper doilies, Denril vellum, and text sheets of Johannot and Clearprint. All rubbings are originals and vary throughout the edition. The publisher and printer wrote a page of notes explaining the image source and process behind each sheet in the book. ALSO INCLUDES the original prospectus with smoked illustration; a packet of ephemera including the original invoice, the program from the book party at the Teacher's and Writers Collaborative in Manhattan, and the "because I know you'll want to know' explanation Price wrote on January 12, 2006; the extensive correspondence between Mears and Price, which includes additional insights by Price on the book's complex production and answers to Mears' questions; and Internet source material on Bloom, tierney (who uses on capitals in her name), and the pyrographic process. The book is as new.
