"At the Grave of the Invisible Man" by Sjon, illustrated by Isabel Chiara

10.00

A short collection of poetry by the Icelandic poet Sjón, with full color illustrations by Spanish collage artist Isabel Chiara. The slightly surreal imagery of each play off of each other to create a lovely little art object. 

The collection contains my favorite Sjón poem, "Lithograph":

"marie curie looks into the light and has the same hairstyle as
edvard munch's sister in the painting 'death in the sickroom'

the picture has been lost -- to dream it predicts the dreamer's death"

The chapbooks were printed by an independent woman-owned business, and each copy is hand-stamped with the Spolia sigil and numbered. Limited to 100 copies.
