  • "Leaves of Grass is the one hundredth publication of the Arion Press. The book was designed and produced under the direction of Andrew Hoyem, with Blake Riley, Brian Ferrett, Chris Godek, Mark Sarigianis, Lewis Mitchell, Sarah Songer, Rochelle Youk (who drew the grass for the title page and colophon), Leif Erlandsson, Thomas Gladysz, and Diana Ketcham. The types are Goudy Californian ... for the text, and Trajan capitals, also by Frederic Goudy, for initial letters and titling. The poetry was set by hand from type freshly cast by Mackenzie & Harris; the introduction, preface, and subsidiary material were composed and cast in Monotype, also by M&H Type. The paper is handmade Langley, from the Barcham Green Mill in England, a special order in 1985, with watermarks of the Press and the Mill. The printing was done on a Thomson Laureate letterpress ... The edition is limited to 275 copies, numbered in Arabic, for sale and fifteen copies, numbered in Roman, for complimentary distribution."--Colophon
