Further Apocrypha standard edition







Further Apocrypha contains twenty-seven previously uncollected poems written by Ray DiPalma between 1993 and 2009. These writings, both sensuous and lyric in their philosophic concerns, reflect what has often been noted as DiPalma’s finely tuned ear and his preoccupation with testing the limits of language and form. Six of his original graphic works accompany the poems.

This edition of 35 standard copies was designed, printed and bound entirely by Rebecca Chamlee. The book was printed on a Vandercook from polymer plates of Centaur and Arrighi types and collages by the poet on Zerkell Nideggen paper. The text blocks were sewn on Ramie tapes with printed Bugra endsheets. The quarter cloth case binding has sides covered in paste papers made by the binder and an inset printed label.
