A set of five, signed relief prints that were produced to accompany the limited edition volume of Jim Harrison's poetry collection, The Theory and Practice of Rivers. The prints measure 14x18", and are stored with the colophon in a white folder. 175 numbered copies were printed to go with the book, but another 40 artist's proofs were produced, and these are from that series (all are #13 of 40). The prints are indistinguishable from the 175 series, though this set is stored in a makeshift white folder (with a small closed tear to the upper back edge and matching dent on front) without any titling or ribbon. Each was printed from wood-mounted, photo-engraved magnesium blocks on BFK Heavyweight paper with deckle edges. "These rather non-specific prints were not intended to illustrate the poetry of Jim Harrison. Instead, they were meant to suggest, in their own small and silent way, the spirit of restlessness which is one of the artist's most valuable tools." Orr and Torrey: A19.a. Scarce.
