  • March 13, 2017 THE OTHER ROOM by BRIAN EVENSON


    The Press at Colorado College is very excited to announce the release of a new book, The Other Room, featuring the first publication of a short story by the renowned writer, translator, and critic, Brian Evenson. (Please click on the images to see larger versions in a separate slideshow.)



    From the colophon:

    The typeface used in this book is Lirico, designed by Hendrik Weber and published by OurType in 2008. The painting on the pages is acrylic gesso. The text was letterpress printed from photopolymer plates. The large numbers and letters on the title page were printed from collagraph blocks. The images were made with a variety of collagraph matrices. The text paper is Rives Lightweight, and the cover stock and endsheets are from the French Paper Company. The Cotlin bookcloth wrapping the boards is painted with gesso and printed from collagraph and photopolymer plates.

    Aaron Cohick, Printer of The Press at Colorado College, was the primary editor, designer, and printer. CC students Patrick Lofgren, Amelia Atencio, and Charles Theobald all helped with various parts of design and production.

    Further Other Book Works, also located in Colorado Springs, consulted on and led work on the binding. Corie Cole helped with proofreading and day-to-day logistics.

    Fifty copies of this book were made. Forty copies, numbered 1 – 40, are for sale. The remaining ten copies, numbered AP 1, AP 2, and so on, were given to the various people who worked on the book.
