Elysia Mann: “The book is an object divided, bound in dualities: left & right, intimate & social, verbal & visual, touchable & immortal. With an interdisciplinary approach that includes printmaking, weaving, installation, and poetry, my work is centered on the book and its power to influence how we view and tolerate contradictions.”


In Times of Considerable Wars
Text by Don Welch
[St. Louis, Missouri]: All Along Press, 2012. Edition of 70.

6.5 x 9.5"; Letterpress printed with Van Dijck types on Nideggen paper. Woodcut and photopolymer illustrations. Bound in hand-marbled paper over boards. Text by Don Welch. Illustration, design and printing by Elysia Mann. Numbered.

Elysia Mann: "Celebrated Nebraskan poet Don Welch pairs epic scope with intimacy in his collection of war poetry. With subjects ranging from the long-past battles of Troy and medieval England to the more recent conflicts in Bosnia and Afghanistan, he offers a sobering glimpse into the seemingly perpetual cycles of human violence. But interspersed throughout the timeline are the vignettes of loving conversations, spare and introspective, that offer a sense of unconquerable optimism. The gutter of the book severs and swallows illustrations, allowing them to reemerge as history-and the book itself-unfolds."

Winner of the Nebraska Book Award for cover/design/illustration book arts, 2013.
