Framed gravure etching by Sandra Fisher, artist’s proof number 5 of 10.

To Share That Moment was originally published with Thomas Meyer’s Monotypes and Tracings, which also contains original monotype prints. This is an artist’s proof, created alongside the main edition.

The American poet Thomas Meyer’s ‘tracings’ of Goethe, Hölderlin, Heine, C.F. Meyer, Nietzsche, Stefan George, Rilke and Celan are accompanied here by an impressive sequence of figurative monotypes by the American artist Sandra Fisher (1947-1994).  In his poetic introduction John Ashbery writes ‘Meyer’s beautiful takes on German Romantic poetry take one far, to unexpected destinations that often turn out to be the essence of the poems … Sandra Fisher’s black-and-white monotypes are the perfect travelling companion’.

Printed on 300gsm Vélin Cuves BFK Rives at Hope Sufferance Press.

We are selling the last of the signed and numbered Artist’s Proof etchings, attractively framed, together with a slipcased copy of the book in its maroon cloth binding (number 191), the text hand-set and printed by Stan Lane in Monotype Garamond.
