Something Sorrow Has Made
By Hazel Hall
Hoboken & Jersey City: Granden Press, 2010. Edition of 12.

8.75 x 12.5"; pages. Concertina binding. Typography by Henry. Pochoir illustrations by Mauriello and Henry. Bound in orange cloth over boards with printed title label on front board. In paper box slipcase with embroidery accents. Signed by both artists on the colophon. Numbered.

Barbara Henry: "Something Sorrow Has Made was inspired by the poems of Hazel Hall, an invalid whose occupation for many years was as a seamstress. Her first book of poems, Curtains, from which we chose our selection, was about her sewing. That is why there is embroidery patterns in the book, and the gray paper that isolates each section is based on her comment that she lived within 'four gray walls.'"
