  • Year of the Quiet Sun is a limited edition folio of prints by world-renowned poet and artist Ludwig Zeller. Often referred to as the “last living surrealist” Zeller is an icon of the art of collage and has made irreplaceable contributions to poetry through his more than 40 poetry collections, 50 poetry chapbooks and five books of collages. Produced by Someone Editions, this folio is made up of 3, heretofore unpublished, collages, simulating the effect of the originals through letterpress printing. The edition is numbered and the prints are signed by the author. The design and letterpress process is inspired by Zeller’s own unique use of 19th Century engravings as source material. Someone Editions has painstakingly underprinted the subtle colours of the paper in the original images and overprinted the strong black outlines, creating a sumptuous visual and tactile experience. These opulent prints are presented alongside excerpts of Zeller’s poetry in their original Spanish and their English translation by A.F Moritz. In Year of the Quiet Sun Ludwig Zeller continues his legacy in surrealism, positing that movement’s philosophy of creation as means of changing the world, using poetry as a tool for transformation.
