Summary/DescriptionIncorporates Dickinson's poem, "Hope is the thing with feathers, " collaged onto the accordion with a monotype of a feather as cover; "... produced in a limited edition of thirty copies in the summer and fall of 2002 by Charles Hobson. It uses buttons, ribbons, feathers, and a pastel monotype based on a photograph taken by Edgar Degas in Paris in 1895, which evokes, for the artist, a sense of clothing as plumage. Charles Hobson and Alice Shaw assembled the pages and made the slipcase. John Demerritt covered the boards in Fabriano Roma. The text has been set in 14-point Spectrum and printed letterpress by M & H Type, San Francisco."--Colophon; Accordion book glued into paper-covered case. Garter used as closure.
