Robert Pinsky, Karen Kunc
Art Library Rare Books Collection PS 3566 .I54 E55 2009 box 12.1

Signed by Karen Kunc. Limited edition of 50 copies, the Art Library has copy 40. A fortuitous invitation from Longwood University, Virginia, pairs Robert Pinsky (Poet Laureate 1997-2000) and book artist Karen Kunc, for the creation of a new work inspired by selected poems. The artist tells us, “In words and images, micro-to-macroscopic layers of poignant meaning and memory are an intimately held and transient wonder, just as light melds recto and verso printing into one light-born envelope. Intimations are caught and lost in the act of reading, viewing, meditating, immersing.” This books contains two poems by Pinsky: Rhyme and The Want Bone.
