Captured Views: Impressions of ten gardens.
Captured Views is a volume of 10 original poems by Kristina Baer with 16 woodcuts by Ilse Buchert Nesbitt. Complementary yet independent, the woodcuts and poems evoke the look and feel of each garden, the memories or dreams it stirs, the associations it calls to mind. For garden lovers and collectors of fine printing, Captured Views offers an appreciation of a garden’s most precious gift—the essence of life itself, ebbing, flowing, in perpetual transition.
The text was set in Monotype Bembo. The woodcuts were printed from the block and the printing was done on Rives paper on an 1897 Golding platen letterpress. Each book is hand-bound with a soft cover of Japanese paper and a printed wrapper.
