"How to Love Someone Forever is a collection of poems written by Kevin Knudson (my husband) and myself for one another and for our son.We are always working on how to love each other, Kevin, Gus, and I, so this is a hint of the grand gooey mess that is us. The weed illustrations further reflect the tangle of our relationships, lovely and difficult as they are. The illustrations are line drawings of weeds printed from photopolymer plates. The book is about the every day of relationships and finding beauty in them when they can be taken for granted and so easily go unnoticed, much like weeds. Handset and printed in Goudy Old Style 394 and Caslon metal types. Letterpress printed on dampened Hahnemuhle Bugra papers in mint and marble gray. The book is double-pamphlet sewn and set in a built-in groove case binding. The paste paper covers are handmade on mint Bugra. Printed by Ellen Knudson / Crooked Letter Press in Starkville, Mississippi on the badass Vandercook Universal 1 proofing press.
