"Fifty copies printed by Russell Maret for backers of Hungry Dutch Set in the first casting of the types complete Roman alphabet sans punctuation."
"You know, I've been designing Walt Whitman books in my head for 30 years, but never managed to make one. I've never even printed a poem of his. But it's strange you should write because I am just about to print a piece of ephemera with text by him. It's an excerpt from his conversations in which he discusses the importance of immigrants to America. I'm printing it in a new metal typeface of mine that's still in process, meaning I don't yet have the punctuation. The analogy being that American without immigrants is like language without punctuation."--artist's statement
