4 x 4 in
Words Fail {Me} presents 12 poems concerned with erosion, extinction and loss, treated to six techniques of typographic erosion (e.g. only upper portion of letterforms visible; vowels deleted; blind hit). The brain readily adapts to the various modes of interrupting our usual habits of reading: what looks impenetrable, such as reversed printing or crossed writing, is surprisingly quickly deciphered. Thus, unlike losses caused by erosion in the physical world, the eroded texts can be reclaimed. The cover further confuses matters by presenting excerpts from the poems layered over one another, in ink colors which merge as they transform.

Printed in Optima from photopolymer plates on dampened Rives de Lin paper. Grey and black ink, with covers printed split fountain in colors ranging from rose to turquoise. Hahnemühle Ingres blue-green endpapers. Produced through the San Francisco Center for the Book’s Small Plates series.
