The Amichai Windows

The Amichai Windows, a limited edition artist book of 18 poems by renown Israeli poet Yehuda Amichai, is nearing completion. We have started a blog to detail the process of this eight-year-long poetry book-making project. Each of the letterpressed poems will be accompanied by photos from archives around the world and original artwork, including hand papercuts by Debra Band.

Read about this artist book as well as Amichai’s life and work in an article by Rick Black that has been posted on the website of Tikkun magazine. The magazine is one of the foremost journals of Jewish contemporary arts and culture.

Explore the World Of poetry and artistic photos!

At Turtle Light Press, it is our mission to help you regain a sense of calm and peacefulness through art. It might be a beautifully handmade book of poetry, artistic photos or a special note card. For us, it is about the love of the craft — combining words and images to create artwork and books that will resonate for you in a deep way. To see our work, please view our store gallery!
