Collapse is yet another book about architecture and love gone bad. Five poems that describe failed relationships use metaphors from engineering and construction. Letterpress printed on Arches, using hand set type and pressure printing, with a little bit of Gocco printing for flair. Each poem is an individual book sewn to an accordion structure that allows the book to open dramatically. The sumptuous wine red Shindanshi paper and dark red book cloth create a brooding mood of heartbreak.
Edition of 20. Letterpress and Gocco printed.
