Water is a collection of poetry, watercolors, and pen-and-ink drawings from poet and author Susan Brind Morrow. Water is the organizing concept; it is also the urtext of the artistic process, the window between the natural world and our representations of it.
The interplay between the media creates a unique reading experience that will appeal to readers of poetry and art books. Morrow’s award-winning work on Egyptian poetry and religious texts manifests here in transcriptions of hieroglyphs and accompanying ink drawings.
Water is a unique ars poetica for one of our most singular contemporary American voices.
