The Journals of Susanna Moodie: Poems
Beginning in the mid-60s, Margaret Atwood and Charles Pachter were enthusiastic collaborators in a unique art form, the "livre d'artiste" -- the marriage of original graphic work with literary text. They worked together on five limited-edition handmade books, volumes of Atwood's poetry with Pachter's interpretive artwork. The culmination of their collaboration, the work that is considered their masterpiece, is "The Journals of Susanna Moodie." This popular edition is a faithful reproduction of the original hand-set, hand-printed version of a treasured Canadian classic. In her reading of Moodie's chronicles of pioneer life, Atwood found the haunting themes that obsess us still. Pachter's vividly evocative images layer the poems with startling echoes and insights.
