The Color of Bone

The Color of Bone is a collection of ten poems by Ava Sayaka Rosen compiled into a beautiful handmade book.   The form of the book follows the concept of the work as a whole.  Long and narrow, the poems evoke the verticality of the human spinal chord woodcut  that adorns the front cover.  To further solidify this idea, the japanese stab binding offers yet another accent of spinal-like verticality.  And to top it off, the poems are amazing!
