By Honoré de Balzac
Tacoma, Washington: Springtide Press, 2009. Open Edition.

4.75 x 11.25" single-sheet broadside. Letterpress printed with handset type on Somerset Velvet.

Jessica Spring: "Letterpress printed broadside is a celebration of coffee and ink with Honoré de Balzac's quote printed in handset type. Thirteen different vintage metal and wood fonts are printed in silver ink."

Quote: "Coffee falls into the stomach...ideas begin to move things remembered arrive at full gallop...shafts of wit start up like sharp-shooters, similes arise, the paper is covered with ink."
