This reads as a parody by its excess and by the fact that it’s the colophon to a work of poems infused with the jargon of the oil patch. Someone at the Coach House Press was having fun with Mathew Henderson’s The Lease.
Typeset in Roos.
Printed in August 2012 at the old Coach House on bpNicol Lane in Toronto, Ontario, on Zephyr Antique Laid paper, which was manufactured, acid-free, in Saint-Jérôme, Quebec, from second-growth forests. This book was printed with vegetable-based ink on a 1965 Heidelberg kord offset litho press. Its pages were folded on a Baumfolder, gathered by hand, bound on a Sulby Auto-Minabinda and trimmed on a Polar single-knife cutter.
Wine snobs could not be more elegant. Except the accent is missing on “Québec” which would not be noticed if they were not present on “Saint-Jérôme”.
And so for day 979
