Intensely private and reclusive, Emily Dickinson wrote many of her late poems in pencil on scraps of envelopes. This enthralling coffee-table-size book - the first-ever full-color facsimile edition of Dickinson manuscripts - treats her envelope writings as works of art, reproducing them life-size in full color, front and back. Transcriptions on the facing pages help you read her words as well as admire the visual forms and her distinctive handwriting. Co-edited by a literary historian and an artist, with a preface by poet Susan Howe. 10" x 12", 272 pp. "Breathtaking ... indispensable" (New York Times).
