Peiser’s New Book of Poems and Glass
Thirty-Eight Pieces of Glass – With Related Thoughts
A Collection of Perceptions Recorded in Words or Glass or Both
This gorgeous 96 page book pairs Peiser’s glass with his brief writings of resonance. All images are varnished in high gloss and placed on 120# faux parchment paper stock accompanied by text reproduced from original hand-typed pages. The book measures 9.5 x 7.25 x 1 inches and is individually bound by hand using a special layflat binding in a hard cover. Designed and printed in North Carolina.
To quote from the Preface: “Since I began with glass fifty years ago, I’ve received countless questions asking, basically, what’s it about? In that discussion I’ve tried to answer honestly and completely but I’ve always felt to have fallen short – short of the words and short of the voice that would say them. When I started to assemble this book, I began feeling much more truthful and satisfying answers to that question. I hope you will too. That these selections sorted out into something of an abridged life story was a bit of a surprise to me. It shouldn’t have been. All along I’ve said my work has been about my feelings and experiences and, over many years, what else is a life?” — Mark Peiser
