Vein Along the Fault

  • The Laueroc Press
  • 1979

Vein Along the Fault is the first collection of poetry from Robert Schultz.

A fine art, limited-edition chapbook produced in Ithaca, New York by The Laueroc Press, its colophon reads:

“Boyd Hill, Tim Larkin & Ashley Miller designed & printed this book using 14 pt. Spectrum, 30 pt. Castellar, damped Ragston paper, and an F. Wesel iron handpress. Part of the publication cost was provided by a grant from the Cornell Council of the Creative & Performing Arts. The edition is limited to 100 copies, signed by the author.”

The cloth cover is bound in handmade marbled paper.

Prevailing winds make the upper branches chop / and hum, each needle end / one head in the choir. Put your ear to the wood, itself; / I knock on it from here. Can you hear me tapping / the heartwood rings with an axe?
