Four Chambers, Five Nights [Artist Book].

Eastampton, MA: Small Offerings Press, 1999. Limited Edition. Hardcover. The text was designed and composed by Sibley using a Macintosh computer. "The imagery was created by Joseph A. Osina at his studio in New York City, and printed by Nathan Kanofsky and Heather Arak at the Arak Kanofsky Studios. Hand coloring by Suzanne Moore. The text was printed letterpress from photopolymer plates by Arthur Larson at Horton Tank Graphics, Hadley, Massachusetts. The binding and folders for an edition of twenty copies and one artist proof were designed by Daniel E. Kelm at The Wide Awake Garage in Easthampton, Massachusetts." [colophon] "The boards for this handmade limited edition were covered with ultrasuede and painted. Carborundum was added for sparkle. The moon is a patinated silver disk, hammered by [Sibley]. The moon is a good metaphor for the process of collaboration. It is important to become new together, to empty of expectations and preconceived notions, to enter the unknown, the dark. Only then do we begin to practice our craft. Inspiration gradually illumines the dark, empty field of space, and a shared vocabulary of words, materials, shapes, color, and light is discovered." [artist statement]. Fine. Tight, bright, and unmarred. Textured cloth boards, gilt lettering, shaped textblock and boards; colophon printed separately and mounted in a matching folder. 8vo. np. Illus. (colored plates). Numbered limited edition. Item #11325
