Pamphlet bound prospectus announcing the publication of Elements. The pamphlet features original poetry and one artist's print. "Elements has been designed, printed and housed in boxes by Russell Maret in an edition of 20 signed & numbered copies, plus five Artist's Proofs. The contents are a collaborative meditation on the elements of air, earth, fire and water between painter Ulf Nilson, Canadian poet Robert Bringhurst and Maret. The papers are Abaca (text), Cotton (air), Silk (water), Abaca-Cotton (fire) and Belgian Linen Cotton (earth), all of which were made especially for this edition at Dieu Donne Paper Mill in New York City. The techniques employed to achieve Nilson's images are watermarking, letterpress printing, branding and wet pulp embossing. The text is printed letterpress from 12 point Gill Sans Medium, cast monotype by Michael & Winifred Bixler in Skaneateles, New York. All printing was done at the Center for Book Arts in New York City during August and September 1995..."--Prospectus. CBA copy is not signed, number nor housed in a box.
