Van Vliet, Claire. Near Fine. Signed by Author & Illustrator NEAR FINE Limited Edition (#92 of 120 copies). SIGNED by both the AUTHOR and the ILLUSTRATOR on the colophon page. Oblong volume (9.5" by 6.5"), unpaginated (16 pages), illustrated with a tipped-in hand-coloured lithograph by Claire Van Vliet, as well as two small page illustrations and a map. From the colophon: "The lithograph was printed from the stone by Eystein Hanche-Olsen at SKHS Oslo; the text is handset Trump Mediaeval italic and printed on Toyama Kayazuki; bound with Kizuki paper over museum board by James Bicknell." The edges of the paper boards are a bit sunned; the cloth spine and its paper label are unblemished. A particularly elegant production of one of the poet's most moving verses.
