This two-part limited edition artist’s book by Charles Hobson has been inspired by Richard Wilbur’s warm and gentle poem conveying a parent’s respect and love for his child as she begins the voyage into adulthood.

Edition of 54 copies. Out of print.

The two volumes are housed in a clamshell box designed to both hold the books and to act as a platform from which to read the two volumes in conjunction with each other. The upper volume contains the text of the poem set in 14-point courier and printed letterpress on BFK Rives paper by Charles Hobson with the assistance of Les Ferriss. The edition in its box measures 12 x 12 x 1-1/4 inches.
