Box of Eros


A collection of 24 erotic haiku (the original texts commissioned by Ravenpress for this project) housed in a lidded box. When
the lid is removed the box opens flat, a stiff-leaf bound book affixed to each wall of the box. The books are inkjet printed
on Moab rag paper using HP archival inks. Artwork by
Heidi Zednik. The box is covered with bookcloth handprinted from a plastic plate in various colors. Each copy signed by book designer and publisher Alicia Bailey. Includes haiku by
Alicia Bailey, Jocelyn Esch, Steve Gordon, Paul Guitterez,
Kim Harrell, Carson Reed, Susan Vaho & Heidi Zednik.

This is an open and variable edition. The elements that may change over time are the color of the outside book cloth and printing, the color of the interior ribbon and the material/size of the interior closure element. All other aspects will remain unchanged throughout the edition.
