Budd, Harold
Vancouver, British Columbia
Heavenly Monkey

7.375 x 10.625"; 28 pages. Letterpress printed. The poems set in 18-point Perpetua italic, titling with 30-point Monument. The paper is Barcham Green Bodleian, a white, laid 80 gram sheet. Sewn into a hand-marbled paper wrap. In slipcase with a spine label. Signed & numbered by the poet. Edition of 26.

Heavenly Monkey: "Harold wrote the poems in this collection between December, 2010, and July, 2012 - the last, 'Ellen's Death' on the passing of his son's mother. The collection includes both short, abstract poems of the type presented in 4 [Heavenly Monkey Press, 2010] and longer allusive poems similar to 'A Thousand Years from Now,' one of the most frequently recommended poems from Harold's first collection, Colorful Fortune [Heavenly Monkey Press, 2009]. Like the poems, Angel's format and production were unadorned and straightforward."

"The paper is Barcham Green Bodelian ... of which we had just enough to produce an edition of 26 copies. It was lightly dampened and printed with our Washington handpress.The lightness of the Bodleian paper made a single signature of 7 sheets (28 pages) possible. It is sewn into a stiff printed wrap with a two-layered dust jacket: a sheet of hand-marbled paper is wrapped in semi-transparent Japanese tissue, upon on which the title has been printed. The book is presented in a slipcase covered in the same vintage marbled paper."
