A Butterfly Careless: Home

Artists' Books
Andrew J. Gay, Dudley Zopp
Art Library Rare Books Collection:  PS 3557 .A97 B87 2001 box 13.1

Edition limited to 174 numbered copies signed by the author and the artist. "A Butterfly Careless" includes 37 haiku-like poems by Andrew Gay and four monotypes by artist Dudley Zopp. The two met during meetings of a local writers' group, and discovered they had similar artistic interests. "I think he wanted to talk to me about doing the book because my sensibilities about the natural world were similar to his," Zopp said. "He was just so very intensely involved with people and with the natural world."
