The Amichai Windows

Meanwhile, we continue our work on The Amichai Windows and plan on starting a blog to detail the process of this three-year long project which is finally coming to fruition. The book will feature 18 of Yehuda Amichai’s poems, each one dealing with a different view of life in Israel today and illustrated with archival photos and original artwork, including hand papercuts by Deborah Band. We will only be producing 18 copies of this book, each poem letterpressed and featured in its own protective triptych covering.

Amichai was one of the greatest poets that Israel has produced in modern times.
