[Vernon, B.C.]: Greenboathouse Press, 2016 [2016-17 ]. Quarto, 29.2 x 21 cm. Cased in quarter blue leather, with leather corner tips, tan paper over boards, and printed title label to the spine; all edges trimmed. Housed in a matching paper covered slipcase. pp. 56. A fine copy. Again, Jason says it better: “Printed from over 20 different types, many cast fresh for this book on an English Monotype Super Caster, some freighted over from Holland, some shipped by post, some hauled in the trunk of my car and some cast by good friends, but all hand set and printed on a Vandercook 219 and 15-21 into Tim Barrett’s wonderful handmade paper during the summer months of 2016. The cranky old fish and the pathetic dead mouse were both engraved by Wesley Bates.” (from the colophon). Bound by Alanna Simenson in Sooke, British Columbia.
