Text from the book:

Some of the photographs in this book were made in Georgia and Louisiana, but most were made in Florida while helping Charlotte Lee develop film her father, Bud, exposed but never processed. Thanks for posing, Charlotte. Macon York helped identify the wooden letterpress type Jay Gould brought down from Minnesota. Jim Sherraden at Hatch Show Print has provided much guidance in person and over the phone. Thanks, Betsy Williamson, for encouraging me to make this book.

On the back cover of the book is this line from the letter, “Do you remember the trees we cut Charlottes Chairdown for fires we never burned?”
This first hardcover edition of Letter Never Sent is limited to 25 copies. A soft cover edition of 12 copies and 1 artist’s proof preceded this hardcover edition. The images and text are inkjet and Laserjet printed on 50lb., double-sided, matte, Red River paper. Ruben is the title’s typeface. The covers are cotton rag paper handmade at the University of Georgia’s Green Street Press. The cover text was printed on an etching press at Louisiana Tech University using a polymer plate produced by Boxcar Press.
