The Ill-Tempered Rubyist

Cara Benson of the Millay Colony invited me to create a work of art in honor of the colony's ruby anniversary. Her suggestion that this work should reference rubies led to the idea of an international anthology of poems involving computer languages, especially the RUBY language. The spontaneous production of this anthology precluded a number of invited poets. It is by no means comprehensive in scale or scope.

The cover is a collage I created in PhotoShop, then transferred to polymer, and printed by letterpress. I printed the text on Reich inkjet paper using an Epson Stylus Pro 3800 printer. I bound the volume using the Japanese side-slab method. The finished book is housed in a clamshell case covered in red cloth.
