Emily Dickinson The Gorgeous Nothings

Previously published as a limited edition artist’s book, Emily Dickinson The Gorgeous Nothings is a colour facsimile edition of Emily Dickinson’s writings on envelopes. Compiled by Marta Werner and Jen Bervin (with a preface by Susan Howe), this striking volume raises all manner of questions about archival scraps, paper and materiality.
