e e cummings

$ 24.00
"Yours is the music for no instrument" - e e cummings

From one our favorite modernist poets, and one of his most sensual, candid collections, Tulips and Chimneys.

The poem has a spirit of adulation that's reminiscent of She Walks in Beauty by Byron, but without the constraints of meter or rhyme. Cummings has a gift for transforming language, and we wanted to capture that in this illustration. The illustration hints at a new kind of music, sensual and surprising, that belongs to no instrument or musician only to itself.
