A Dream in the Eye Has Arrived!

Phyllis Webb fans rejoice! The long-awaited A Dream in the Eye edited by Stephen Collis has arrived at Talonbooks. This journey through the visual art Webb created when “words abandoned” her offers a new and enriching look into the creative mind that brought us decades of poetry.

Featuring seventy-four paintings and eighty collages, A Dream in the Eye includes probing introductory material by the book’s editor, Stephen Collis, and by art historian and curator Laurie White, as well as supplementary material, including some of Webb’s own reflections on her visual work, an essay by Betsy Warland, and a selection of poems written in response to Webb’s paintings by her long-time friend Diana Hayes.
