TKS Books, 2021. Item #3007
TKS is a small edition publishing project, whose name draws on a rogue Granary Books publishing name—Tibetan Kite Society—and the editorial annotation "tk." In that spirit, the project explores the idea of "the books to come," drawing on a range of printing techniques and poetic influences.
TKS publishing is cross-generational in its inquiry, and this year's publications include work by Robin Blaser and David Farwell, Ruby Harrison-Clay and Naomi Harrison-Clay, Gilbert Sorrentino and Ammiel Alcalay, and M.C. Kinniburgh.
This is a complete collection of all TKS editions published in 2021, including:
David Farwell with Robin Blaser, edited by Miriam Nichols. Dave's Fabulous Recipes. 8 1/2 x 5 1/2 in. book, bound in binder rings with Strathmore paper covers. Linocut by M.C. Kinniburgh.
Naomi Harrison-Clay and Ruby Harrison-Clay. The Perfect Unfolding. 5 x 5 in. archival giclee print of a mixed media artwork on paper, printed by Uncommonbindery. Housed in a yellow glassine envelope with pink embossed colophon sticker.
