Five Poems - Toni Morrison
Five Poems - Toni Morrison Five Poems, a rare collection of original verse by Nobel Prize-winning author Toni Morrison, was designed and printed letterpress from photopolymer plates at Peter Koch, Printers. The stunningly illustrated book–signed by the author, artists, and designer–features five original silhouettes by MacArthur Foundation Award-winning artist Kara Walker. Set in Rialto Piccolo, a typeface designed by Giovanni de Faccio and Lui Karner, the text is printed on tan Rives BFK paper. The deluxe edition, which is case-bound with cloth boards and features a quarter-leather binding, comes enclosed in a drop-spine box clad in rich red shantung cloth. The regular edition is case-bound in Fabriano Ingres-covered boards printed with a Walker design and comes housed in a yellow silk shantung- and paper-covered slipcase.
