Ephemera by Karen Kunc

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.
