Paper of Live Flesh
Paper of Live Flesh is a declaration and a shared vision; a book that unfolds to reveal a rich textural world. Within it the artist and poet weave the incisive probing of line with a spirited and complex interrogation of language. This is the first United States publication for both the author and the artist.
