Ravaged with Joy

13 x 13 x 1 inches; 36 pages; edition of 150 [1998]

A record of William Everson’s 1975 reading at the University of California, Davis. The main text is a presentation of the reading—poems and extemporaneous ruminations—integrated with six dramatic, large-scale woodcuts created for this publication by Keiji Shinohara. Introduction by Sidney Berger. Also included is a CD recording of the 1975 reading and a booklet of collected remembrances. “The beauty and substance of Ravaged immerses us in the language, imagery and sound that captures William Everson’s commitment to a life directed by such an exquisite discipline of excavation and revelation.”—Betty Bright, Parenthesis 7. Designed and printed letterpress by Price in Dante type on custom handmade paper; exposed long-stitch binding co-designed with Daniel E. Kelm; colored vellum spine; printed flax paper-covered boards; linen-covered slipcase. Signed by Shinohara and Price. $1200
