This is the first publication by Eléna Rivera. She is the author of Mistakes, Accidents and the Want of Liberty (Barque Press, 2006), Suggestions at Every Turn (Seeing Eye Books, 2005), Unknowne Land (Kelsey St. Press, 2000), Wale; or, the Corse (Leave Books, 1995) and a pamphlet entitled Disturbances in the Ocean of Air (Phylum Press, 2005). Her translation of Isabelle Baladine Howald’s Secret of Breath is just out from Burning Deck Press.

I interviewed Eléna about her own bookmaking projects, which include Her Hand, for the catalog of the exhibit, Livres de poètes (femmes).
