A Poets Alphabet of Influences by Mark Strand was printed under the direction of Everett L. Cooley. Its publication was made possible through the generosity and support of Catherine B. and Claudius Y. Gates. Each of the drawings by Bonnie Sucec was individually painted by her. The book was designed, set by hand, and printed by Day Christensen. They type is 16 point Van Dijck and the handmade cotton rag paper is from the Twinrocker Paper Mill. It was printed damp on an 1846 Columbian hand press. The books were bound and boxed by BookLab. Printing was finished in November 1993. The edition is limited to 75 copies for sale and 20 copies hors de commerce.
