Pinsky poems with Kunc prints

Image from


In early 2010, the library purchased a copy of Robert Pinsky’s Ephemera: Poems with prints by Karen Kunc (Avoca, Nebraska: Blue Heron Press, 2009). Our copy is number 4 of 50 copies signed by the artist.

Kunc’s work was concurrently on display at CC as part of the Sugar, Sugar exhibition in the IDEA Space at the Cornerstone Arts Center, and within days of its acquisition several students visited Special Collections to view the book.

In support of Colorado College’s new minor in The Book (the past, present, and future of the written word in its material form), we are slowly building our collections of artists’ books and examples of different sorts of book structures; for more information on the minor, visit this page.
