"This second edition of thINK is dedicated to Hatch Show Print in Nashville, Tennessee. It is the result of a rather unconventional exercise in artistic collaboration: nine of my graphic design students were teamed with nine published poets. Together, the teams picked from a selection of Hatch woodblocks dating back to the 1930s. The poets then created original material in response to their chosen woodblock. The designers, in turn, created impressions based on the poems. Design inspiring poetry inspiring art. On the following pages, each team has their own center spread in this unusual binding. A special thanks to Jim Sherraden and the Country Music Hall of Fame for sharing these incredible woodblocks, and Beth Shumaker at B.W. Wilson for donating the Lynx Soft White paper on which this work is printed"--P. [3]. Statement attributed on Vamp & Tramp Booksellers website (Feb. 14, 2014) to Jamie Mahoney.
