Three volumes: (54), (61), (54) pp., 8vo. Perfect-bound in printed paper over boards, in unprinted board slipcase, published in an edition of one hundred copies. New.

Facsimile reproductions of two of the poet’s travel notebooks, from trips to Japan in 2006 and 2010, with a third volume of edited typographic transcription of the text (and concluding with the transcript of a 2010 interview in Japan).

Filled with flowers, maps, leaves, photos, quotations, ticket stubs, and notations, from “Crossing International Date Line / Leaving behind coffee and email” to “Poetry is no one’s idea of profit. / Learning to read and write — the mind is up for grabs. / Next stop, KUDASAI.”

Third volume signed by the poet on the halftitle (though the colophon calls for all copies to be signed, only a handful were).
