Going Down Singing. A Poem in Nine Parts by Robert Bringhurst with ten burnished aquatints by Joseph Goldyne.
Camden ME: Two Ponds Press, 2017. Slim folio,  ff. including ten full-page prints. Printed in red, black, and grey. Quarter blue morocco lettered in silver and gold, moire silk board, lined and padded silk box, new. Limited to 50 copies for sale, signed by the author and by the artist-- in addition Goldyne has also signed each separate print. The latest production of the Two Ponds Press, which is becoming established as one of the finest private presses in the West. From their first book, an unpublished story by Margaret Wise Brown, to this magnificent production no expense is spared and infinite care is taken to bring the book to the highest production values imaginable. This book is (frankly) a bargain as the San Francisco artist Joseph Goldynes original prints sell in the $1000+ range, and Bringhursts fame as a poet, typographer, and designer is legendary. His last book, for the Book Club of California, sold out before publication.
