Ray DiPalma's "Further Apocrypha" deluxe 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.

The deluxe copies numbered four and five of the edition of forty are red full Harmatan goat leather. The text blocks were sewn on linen tapes with printed endsheets of Bugra paper, sprinkled edge decoration, hand sewn silk endbands and are stored in a cloth-covered clamshell box. The image of an airplane from the endsheets is impressed into the cover of both the box and the book.
