Notes
  • "Walden Marginalia, or, The Contents of a Dozen Shanties is an examination of margin notes in twelve copies of Thoreau's Walden found in various libraries across the country. By withholding the original text to focus solely on the marks of past readers, Walden Marginalia turns the same kind of close attention Thoreau inspired in his readers onto the readers themselves. The text that accompanies the images of marginalia has the tone of a personal essay and serves as a commentary on the reading habits of strangers, assumptions about nature writing and learning, and the lingering effects of Thoreau's classic work."--Artist's statement at Vamp & Tramp Booksellers website, viewed July 12, 2012.
  • Edition of 50 copies.
  • "All marginalia in Walden Marginalia were rendered in the artist's hand, conformed to the dimensions of the first edition of Walden, and [letterpress] printed from photopolymer plates on a Vandercook No. 3. The text was hand-set in Scotch Roman and Bodoni types, the closest approximation of those used in the first edition. The paper is Zerkall Book Vellum.
  • Includes "Bibliography of Waldens."
