In 1977 the friendship between Jerome Rothenberg and Phil Sultz led to a collaboration that produced 101 copies of Seneca Journal: The Serpent (Singing Bone Press.) The paper for the original project was made by hand by Tom Lang, who also set the type and printed the pages. The offering was wrapped in three folded sheets of handmade mulberry paper from Japan. Each cover was hand-painted by Phil Sultz. Copies now reside in many book arts collections including Emory University and the University of Virginia.
Jerome Rothenberg is among the foremost poets, anthologists, and commentators on poetics of the present day.
