Tulips: A Valentine
By Teresa Pankratz
Chicago, Illinois: Theodora Press, 2004. Edition of 5.

2.5 x 2.5 x 2.5"; 4 pages. Text in 12 point Apple Chancery and printed on Karakusa paper. Inner tulip liner papers of folded Pink Mulberry and Hagakura. Tulip linocuts on the inside of the box printed on Pink Mulberry. Housed in drop-sided cloth covered box with ribbon closures.

Teresa Pankratz: "Multiple layers of folded Japanese paper separate as this drop-sided box is opened and the innermost four pages becomes fully visible. revealing a text that begins: 'That time you were away/I bought tulips in January./For a whole day/they would not drink, /their heads/bowed/almost to the table/in sorrow…' The narrative of the progressive opening of these winter flowering buds is a love poem that unfolds upon the book’s innermost pages."
$275 (Last two copies)
