To Sit With Animals
Linocuts by Sigfredo Mendoza
Words by Mary Wehner
Tuscaloosa, Alabama: Red Hydra Press, 2013. Edition of 40.

Steve Miller: "This is my fourth collaboration with Wisconsin poet Mary Wehner, and the second with Havana-born Sigfredo Mendoza. I met the artist while working on artist book projects in Cuba. He became a friend and has visited Tuscaloosa twice. On a recent visit I gave him eight linoleum blocks and asked him to cut them as he saw fit. I then sent proofs of the blocks to the poet, and, Voila!, a book was born.

"Note to self: It is much harder to make a miniature book."
