Ten color etchings for twelve poems of Emily Dickinson, chosen for their references to landscape, colors and seasons. Each of the ten etchings were hand printed by the artist from four copper plates, bound in silk and boxed by David Bourbeau of Thistle Bindery, Easthampton, MA. The first copy was completed in December, 1986. Of the edition of 50, 10 remain. Titles are the first lines of the Emily Dickinson poem.
Fourteen original prints generated from 3 plates and hand inked by Margaret Jean Taylor at Zea Mays Printmaking then housed in 2 boxes measuring 12 x 30 inches in 2007
Cutting her five-foot diameter drawing into eight sections to be viewed sequentially, Margaret hand cut the title letters and printed them. She oversaw printing of the plates by Master printers at Zea Mays Printmaking in 2014 and 2015
Four two-plate etchings 18 x 24 inches with text written by the artist were created by Master printer Liz Chalfin, from Margaret’s drawings and a plate the artist had made in the 1990s. Ms. Chalfin printed the edition of seven in 2018 and 2019, which is now housed in folios created by Amy Borezo of Shelter Bookworks, Orange, MA. Review by Ronald Story.
