We Are All Bodies of Water by Astrida Neimanis with Beatriz Hausner, editor
Creatively and sensitively pulled from Astrida’s original work, two voices run in sync with one another over a large format broadside, which are folded twice for the collection. More than 300 lines of type each line set in its own weight and to its own length to keep the voices distinct and juxtaposed.
22H x 11W”
Designed in Formata, and printed from photopolymer plates and wood types
Letterpress printed on Nideggon text in four blue/greens from photopolymer plate and wood
Signed and numbered, in an edition of 52 copies, 26 of which are included in the boxed someone:water collection
someone:water two We Are All Bodies Of Water
The someone:water series was started in 2009 with The Shore, someone:water one, by A.F. Moritz, in the year that the author won the Griffen Poetry Prize. The series developed through the following years, with Astrida Neimanis (2011), Beatriz Hausner and Seth Scriver (2012), and Pamela Dodds (2014) adding to the collections with someone:water two, three and five.
The collection was completed for launch in December 2017 with the release of two new broadsides: the waters are divided by Paul Till and Pas De Deux by KarlJirgens with image by Zile Liepins.
Editor Beatriz Hausner who also authors someone:water three has brought the literary component of this collection to fruition, while Deborah Barnett has guided the visual components, and designed and printed the series.
Split fountain letterpress printed title pages impressed directly from the wood, and individual monoprint-duplexed boxes were designed and produced in the Someone Editions atelier in 2014, art directed by Deborah Barnett, with monoprinting accomplished by Claro Cosco for the edition.
A few title pages and a few monoprints have been held back from title page and box production to be made available as individual prints for framing.
