Lion-froth Crown
is a collaboration begun in 2011, finished in 2013, and released in 2014 between author Cade Collum, bookbinder Anna Embree, letterpress printer Steve Miller, and artist Craig Wedderspoon. Weaving all the parts of this book together was a lengthy process. All four artists put their heads together to build the book out, beginning with the text. Some of the poems and drawings were printed on the translucent Neenah paper, sot there is a subtle and sometimes dramatic relationship between pages, as parts of images or poems are revealed beneath the page being viewed. It was printed in Deepdene types in an edition of forty-five copies, plus nine artist proofs, on French Gray Grout and Neenah UV Ultra II papers, 6.25" x 9". One of Craig's drawings was letterpress printed on mysterious silver book cloth, and hand bound in boards by Anna. This book was made in Alabama!
