Fallibility. By Elizabeth Oness. Frontispiece by Ladislav Hanka. Limited Edition. One of Only 126 Copies. Sutton Hoo Press. Winona, 2003.

$90.00

The five poems contained in this slim volume by Elizabeth Oness showcase a masterful talent for revealing the subtle, obscure meanings of landscape, language, and relationships. The author and longtime teacher has won numerous awards, including the O. Henry Prize, the Nelson Algren Award, and the Iowa Short Fiction Prize. In Fallibility, she illuminates the emotional and the natural with the sparest of details. This volume precedes the full-length collection by several years. The frontispiece wood engraving by Ladislav Hanka appears wonderfully ahead of the text. This limited edition is also deceiving in its simple design, with paper wrappers and only two quires, but done with the finest craftsmanship and attention to detail. 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 limited edition is in fine condition. It is printed from Perpetua types on dampened Iyo Glazed Japanese handmade paper. It is bound in fine paper wrappers with unique form and texture.

A fine limited edition of Fallibility, exceptionally scarce.
