Poetry. In Mary Jo Salter's new chapbook, the poet explores the art of losing, elegizing lost language, people, and places. LOST ORIGINALS moves from the landscape of a twentieth century nursing home, to William Blake's illuminated engravings and printer's proofs, to the burial traditions of ancient Egypt, and to a museum in snowy, present-day Chicago. This deluxe edition was designed and letterpress printed by James Dissette on a Vandercook 4 Proof Press and was bound by hand at Campbell-Logan Bindery. It includes original engravings by Abigail Rorer, with a hand-tinted frontispiece. All deluxe copies are signed by the author.
