Early Modernist Delmira Agustini is one of the most important Latin American poets of the last 200 years. She is a brilliant Uruguayan artist who pioneered many of the poetic qualities which came to dominate twentieth century literature. In this collection, A Flock of Doves, selections from her first three books of poetry are arranged in chronological order, showcasing a development of style and thematic interest across an important part of Agustini’s literary career. Valerie Martínez’s translations and critical introduction offer us the musicality and poetic importance of Agustini’s work. Linocuts for the book were designed and printed by noted artist Adrián Tió. They are exceptional examples of Tió’s command of form and design. This signed limited edition is also noteworthy for its fine craftsmanship and scarcity. Published by the Sutton Hoo Press, an exceptional private press operating in rural Minnesota, this volume represents the necessary skill and artistry of the centuries’ old craft of bookmaking brought into the 21st century.

This signed limited edition is in fine condition. It was set up by hand and printed from Joanna types on Iyo Glazed, a Japanese, hand-made paper. The book was bound in cloth boards with a gilt spine at Campbell Logan Bindery in Minneapolis, MN. This volume is one of only 150 copies produced. Valerie Martínez’s and Adrián Tió’s signatures appear on the illustrated loose endpaper.
