Hadley: Double Elephant Press, 2006. 17 x 12. Poetry, lithographs, and etchings by Michael Kuch retell the Biblical story of Samson from Delilah's point of view. The book's images refer to and play upon well-known works of art. The upper cover has a collage of a temple with marbled paper pillars. The temple image continues throughout the book, with paired columns of text surmounted by etchings as friezes; the entire text of Judges is incorporated into the etchings. Between the columns of text, twelve lithographs depict Samson in his labors. Bound coptic style, the sheets are woven together at fore edges. A built in easel supports the book in its case.
