Tuscaloosa: Skeptical Press, 1993. Three volumes. 5 1/2 x 7. Boards, in cloth slipcase. Fine set with the prospectus. Item #1525
One of 15 sets. Text, printing, and binding by the book artist Coriander Reisbord. In "Riddle" five intaglio etchings are suspended in cut-out windows with printed hint below. "Ghost," printed from Cory's handwriting on ghostly silk tissue, remembers a grandmother's last days. Text of the Defensive Book is taken from a manual given to college freshman women. The book exemplifies fear and paranoia with increasingly smaller pages and ever more embedded pins.
