Song of Myself

I celebrate myself, and sing myself

My book Song of Myself: American Renaissance launches on December 11. The book consists of texts collected from the Facebook pages of Edgar Allan Poe, Emily Dickinson, Henry David Thoreau, Herman Melville, Nathaniel Hawthorne, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Walt Whitman.

It is available as a small pocket book priced at €15,- and as a special edition that can also be used for exhibition. The image above is taken of an installation of the latter at Hamburger Bahnhof in Berlin where the book will launch at Friends with Books.

The special edition consists of 58 inkjet printed sheets at A3 size in an archival folder. There are seven copies plus one artist proof. In the colophon each of the seven copies is associated with one of the poets that appear in the project, i.e. there is Edgar Allan Poe’s copy, Emily Dickinson’s, Henry David Thoreau’s, Herman Melville’s, etcetera. If you are ordering the edition you can choose which copy you’d like (check if it’s still available). The edition is priced at €745,-
