Each book is hand-signed.

rainbow’s end is a hand printed book. Text is printed on black paper in letterpress using multiple fonts in multiple colors. Binding was done with simple stitching. This is a conceptual and visual book, with no images or pictures other than a simple colored noodly pencil line on one page. The book was created for a friend’s year-long project with the theme of a year of gold. There is one poem on one page. Often there is one word per page. Most of the words, word & page combinations, etc., are or reveal chemical symbols for gold or silver. Some words are simply fun. Quoting from the colophon, “I don’t know what kind of paper it is and I don’t care. We’ve all grown tarnished.”
