Snapper, My Life with Snapping Turtles
Written, illustrated, and physically produced by Paper Plant editor John Dancy-Jones

Snapper is an essay on snapping turtles in captivity, expressed in words and images. It is also the culmination of twenty five years of book arts and alternative publishing. The ten linoleum block prints are executed on handlaid recycled paper made with an English laid mould and comprising six different pulps. With just under a thousand words of text set in 18 point Palatino and 24 point Schoolbook, letterpress printed on twelve sheets of handlaid paper, and Japanese side-bound with linen thread, the chapbook itself becomes a work of art that serves to complement its content.

ISBN 0-929170-15-6 $45.00

 Snapper Soundbites

 You continue to amaze with your lovely papermaking projects. Snapper is a highly personal but still widely educational chapbook.
Fred Chappell
N.C. Poet Laureate

 It’s a beautiful thing, a great cover, a wonderful text, and handsome throughout. It reminds me, in its straightforwardness, of the recently published Wild Fruits of Henry David Thoreau.
Denis Wood
