BILLY RAY'S FARM: With Engravings by Barry Moser. Larry Brown, Barry Moser. BILLY RAY'S FARM: With Engravings by Barry Moser.
Decatur, Georgia: Wisteria Press, 1997. First edition. Letter "Z" of 26 COPIES BOUND IN FULL LEATHER and housed in handmade clamshell box, each copy SIGNED BY BROWN AND MOSER and with TWO LOOSE LITHOGRAPHS SIGNED BY MOSER in glassine envelope laid in (one is the frontispiece illustration, the other appears opposite the first page of text and is of Brown). The handmade box is by artist Kannex Fung and features heavily textured handmade papers and a small wooden picket fence that becomes a stockade when the box is fully closed. A beautiful, fine-press production. Although Billy Ray, Brown's son, has had persistent bad luck with cattle, in this non-fiction essay featuring dead calves, misbehaving bulls, rampaging coyotes and dilapidated fences, both father and son remain optimistic: "Billy Ray's farm does not yet exist on an earthly plane," writes Brown, but "on Billy Ray's farm there will be total harmony, wooden fence rows straight as a plumb line, clean, with no weeds, no rusted barbed wire." Later collected under the same title in 2001. His first work of nonfiction since his acclaimed ON FIRE. Fine in fine box. ONE OF ONLY 26 TO INCLUDE TWO MOSER LITHOGRAPHS.
