Heavenly Monkey Press, blog: "The Publisher's copies are printed on Arches wove, and sewn into a handmade paste paper wrap. These copies also feature a semi-transparent usu kichi jacket on which the title has been printed and registered to exactly overlay the title on the underlying wrap. "The Publisher's copies also feature a special extra print of Harold's frontis arabesque drawing, also printed on semi-transparent Japanese paper. The image is repeated in reverse on the recto of the sheet, using the same off-set technique that William Everson used for the prints in his monumental Granite/Cypress publication. Like the jacket, this extra print is sewn into the book to exactly overlay the frontis." Rollin Milroy in interview with Andrea Koczela: "One of the coolest collaborations I've enjoyed has been working with the composer Harold Budd. I've been listening to his music, regularly & heavily, since high school (i.e. early '80s). I got the opportunity to co-publish his first collection of poems in 2009, through a mutual friend, and that's spun into several other projects. I generally don't like to meet people whose art or work I like - I prefer to maintain the distance & mystery. But getting to know & work with Harold has been everything I could have hoped for. He's a true artist, and not being one myself, it's fascinating & inspiring to see how a true artist creates.
