“Trevor and I had wanted to do a collaboration for Granary for some time. I had fooled around before with a longish, prosy poem in the form of a diary—this one is and isn’t—and while Trevor was fashioning his gorgeous images, I did a good deal of writing. The book really came together, and acquired something of a shape, after we hit upon the title. Not only do we both love the word elevenses, which the British use for their late morning pick-me-up; for a number of years Trevor and I have been meeting for coffee (and a walk in good weather) at 11:00 a.m. So the title seemed perfect for our collaborating in print (with no coffee stains marring Steve’s beautiful production).”
The book was printed by Jason Walz on Hanemühle Photo Rag 308 gsm 100% cotton rag paper using Epson Ultrachrome K3 pigment-based inks on an Epson Stylus Pro 3880 inkjet printer. Bound by Judith Ivry. This is from an edition of 30 copies, each numbered and signed by the poet and artist. As new.
