Four Poems
by Paul Celan, Barbara Fahrner, Pierre Joris

Through etchings and original drawings, Barbara Fahrner presents four of Paul Celan's poems of the "dark underground" in this set of four accordion fascicles. Each of the poems is presented in German alongside an original English language translation by Pierre Joris. The delicate, almost translucent paper, coupled with the subtleness of Barbara Fahrner's drawings, attribute to Paul Celan's work an aspect that is, in the words of the artist, "more a whispering than speaking." The boards of each book are covered in stunning papers mixing light and dark tones.

Four volumes housed in a cloth-covered clamshell box by Judith Ivry. Signed by Fahrner and Joris. 20 for sale in the U.S. and 20 for sale in Germany, 8 hors commerce.
