11th Century Chinese Poetry, David Young - Qin Guan, fine press books, James Dissette, Letterpress, New English Translation
Tomorrow there will be some proper photographs of the new book enclosed with a slipcase but the first prototype cases are still drying in the press at the moment. Allow me to introduce the regular edition binding of Moon as Bright as Water by the exiled 11th century Chinese poet Qin Guan. This is the first time these poems will be printed in English, our thanks to David Young and, posthumously, William McNaughton for bringing forth these translations.
Copies will be available this coming weekend at the Oak Knoll Fest in New Castle, Delaware. My partner in Chester River Press, James Dissette and I will be at my table along with my other Deep Wood Press titles that are currently available. More details to come in the following days.
