Announcing Interbirth's Second Title:
Mary Burger's A Partial Handbook for Navigators



Interbirth Books is pleased to present Mary Burger's A Partial Handbook for Navigators. This handbound, hardback edition explores the dynamic relationship between natural space, the human body, and the fabricated structures and environments that modify the nature of our interaction with the external world. Burger approaches her subject through an innovative combination of poetry and prose designed to challenge our expectations of form and reveal poetry's capacity to navigate the space between environment and experience. 

One hundred books were hand bound using a traditional Coptic stitch. Fifty books are numbered and signed by the author. This edition includes a removable screen-printed wrap by Clifton Riley and cover art by Amy Trachtenberg (Rift Zone, 2008).

47 pages -- 61/8 in. x 61/8 in. x 1/2 in. -- $25 + shipping.
