Description

Published in 1985 jointly by Emanon Press & Women's Studio Workshop, A MERZ SONATA was created during an artist-in-residency at WSW in Rosendale, New York. The poem, by Jerome Rothenberg, is a tribute to Kurt Schwitters & was handset with Futura, Schwitters' favorite typeface. Debra Weier did the two multiple-plate etchings, designed the book & printed it. Carol Joyce bound the book, printed on Rives BFK with special handmade endpapers. It is printed in an edition of fifty.
