Berkeley: Koch Editions, 2003. 8vo, 11 x 5.5 inches, unpaginated. Stiff card wrappers oversewn, upper wrapper illustrated, in card portfolio and slipcase. As new. Number 24 of an edition of 150 copies signed by Seibert and McNeill. Bound by John DeMerritt in paper made at the Magnolia papermill. Peter Koch noted: "The Helen Fragments is a collaboration between two contemporary artists who have come together over an ancient text that has fascinated readers for millennia. The poet and printer, Richard Seibert, has selected portions from Homer's Iliad that tell the tumultuous story of Helen of Troy and has translated them from the original Greek into contemporary lyric.
Winifred McNeill, a New York based artist, working over a period of two years, completed over a hundred drawings for this project. Each of the fifty fragments is accompanied by a drawing that has been reconfigured digitally under the supervision of the artist and printed letterpress from polymer plate." Item #122606
