This is a single poem, printed on rectos only, assembled so that the alternating leaves open from the right side and left side until they finally reveal a color photo of Governors Bay at sunrise on the inside of the back cover. The author is a New Zealand-born poet and fine printer. His own presses, the Hawk Press (1974-83) the Black Light Press (1987-91), and the Holloway Press (1994-1998), have printed his own work and the work of other poets.
