Thaliad & The Foliate Head
If you would like to see some images of the book in progress, hop to Clive's blog, where the title page and some other pages are on display. (You may scroll down and see lots and lots of the work for this book, and if you go back far enough, you'll bump into images for The Foliate Head as well) This is the second collaboration I've ever done where I knew every participant in real life (as oppose to e-life.) I spent ten days with Clive in Wales during the celebration for his 60th birthday retrospective at The National Library of Wales, and I met Beth Adams here in Cooperstown last year and hope to see her again soon. It's a very different way of making a book, and I like it.
For The Foliate Head, I knew Clive--again!--and Andrew Wakelin, the designer; I met him at Ty Isaf while staying with Clive. And I should say that Peter Wakelin also had an oar in as well! It's great fun to know every person working on a project, particularly when they are all so talented in their own fields. I have had great good luck of having brilliant people working on The Foliate Head and Thaliad, both out this fall--The Foliate Head (UK: Stanza Press) in early fall, Thaliad (CA: Phoenicia Publishing) in November.
