Item #17635

This advance “history” shares five planned projects from Heavenly Monkey: Anne Bromer’s XI LXIVMOS: Memoirs of a Bibliomidget (2015), Barbara Hodgson’s Mrs. Delaney Meets Herr Haeckle (2016), Harold Budd’s Aurora Tears (2016), Francesca Lohmann’s An Accumulated Alphabet (2017), and Josh Bell’s Sci-Fi Violence (2016, though possibly not published). In October of 2015, Rollin Milroy wrote in the Heavenly Monkey blog, “The cover paper is Roma Fabriano. It’s a bizarre sheet in a patently non-HM color (pink), purchased for pennies on the dollar at the bankruptcy sale. The laid sheet (probably machine-made, doubtfully mould) has an exaggerated screen side that makes it useless for printing. It's been in the studio for ages. But the color matches nicely with HM’s newly acquired stock of bronze ink, which will be re-appearing in the upcoming Harold Budd project” (10/12/15). Later in the month, he wrote, regarding the cover overlay paper, “It’s a lovely handmade gampi, with the printed title positioned to perfectly overlay the same line on the Roma wrap. Because the gampi is so thin, it’s a little tricky fitting it around the book & getting it to stay in place - keeping the two lines in register - while sewing” (10/29/15).
