Caveworks Press: Crazy Eddy on the Judgment Day

Wednesday, January 26th, 2005

Crazy Eddy on the Judgment Day by Mary Swander is the newest publication by Caveworks Press:
Crazy Eddy on the River

Swander writes the roiling river; her language moves with elemental force, unstoppable. Upturned, near familiar phrases momentarily surface like a favorite article of clothing and are submerged again, often with comic results. Humorous stories within stories emerge, like “Samson of Wisconsin,” dwarf Crazy Eddy’s giant nemesis, and how he defeated him. Swander’s rural midwest roots cling tight to her stories and capture their idiosyncratic characters with a close relative’s unflinching eye.

Hand set in Garamond and Engraver’s Shaded type and printed on Mohawk Superfine. Bound in Fraser covers with Thai Mango endpapers. Binding assisted by Margaret Whiting and Julie McLaughlin. Printed in an edition of 125, and illustrated with linoleum cuts by Julie Russell-Steuart in one of the coldest summers on record.
