lone goose press: "All of Him was produced in an edition of 43 numbered copies with 10 additional lettered copies reserved for the participants. All copies are signed by the authors and artist.
"The types used are handset Gill Sans for the poems and colophon. Computer generated Beata and Gill Sans Light were used for the display types and printed from polymer plates. The types, handset and polymer, were printed on a Vandercook 219 proofing press. Sandy Tilcock, lone goose press proprietor, designed, printed, and 'bound' the book.
"Papers used are Rives BFK, off-white, for the text pages and Saint-Armand’s Black Denim Canal made from clothing industry offcuts for the chemise. The cloth for the box is Duo Graphite from Bamberger Kaliko Textiles in Germany.
"The original images are individual trace monotypes which were scanned and adjusted in Photoshop so they would be suitable for the making of polymer photogravure plates. Many images were made for each poem. Sandy Tilcock selected the final images used and laid them out on the page for each poem. Once the layout was finalized the adjusted, image file was sent to Intaglio Editions of Boulder, Colorado, where the polymer plates were made by Jon Lybrook. The plates were editioned by Sandy Tilcock and Nikolas Wise in the lone goose press studio."

All of Him was a true collaboration, evolving over a period of four years. The intense, intimate poems deal with Michael and Matthew Dickman's loss of their older brother to a drug overdose."
