Beautifully presented selection of the poetry of Emily Dickinson. Title alludes both to the "sampling" of the poet's work as well as the needlework sampler-inspired illustrations. Prospectus and sample of the handmade paper used in the printing are laid in. Also included is a printed 2008 New Year's greeting from the Press featuring Emily Dickinson's poem "Safe in Their Alabaster Chambers" and Kiki Smith's "dots on a disc of snow" - an illustration printed from a plate not used in the book. Edition of 400 copies numbered for sale and 26 lettered copies, this #99. Signed by the artist.
