The Oldest Garden in the World

Elizabeth Willis' poetry has been described as hauntingly luminous, hermetic, gorgeous, surprising, and an evocative blend of the lyrical and abstract. The accompanying digital collages are one reader's response to the poems in all their painterly, historic, and scientific evocations. Created digitally, converted photo-chemically, and printed mechanically from 4 color polymer plates on Japanese paper. Printed in an edition of 17. Propolis Press, 2006.
