Poems for Democracy

The three poems by Walt Whitman, To the States, Long Too long America, For you O Democracy, have been chosen to mark the inauguration of the 45th President of the United States of America.

They are published in an edition of thirty in the form of a leporello. The accompanying two mezzotints by Judith Rothchild of sleepy America are printed by the artist on Hahnemühle paper.

The hand-set letterpress in Vendôme romain was printed on an Vandercook N° 4 by Mark Lintott who also made the slipcases with papers screen printed by the artist.

The books are signed by the artist and typographer.

Format 7 ½ x 10 in. Verdigris, January 20th, 2017
