Poetry. This hand-sewn limited edition has a letterpress cover and design influenced by 18th century typesetting and binding techniques. A stunning work of prose and poetry by eminent poet Caroline Knox, NINE WORTHIES operates as a sort of historical novella, telling the story of the life and times of American portraitist Nathaniel Smibert in nine individual portraits interwoven with the perspective of the artist.
