The Rover of Chao
Dartmouth Book Arts Workshop
Printed by Xin Su, 2010
Li Bai (701–762), also known as Li Bo, Li Po, and Ri Haku, has been regarded highly as a poet in China for many years. His reputation has also extended outside the East. Indeed, poets Ezra Pound (his Cathay, 1915) and the Japanese-born but U.S. educated Shigeyoshi Obata (1888-1971) are but two who have translated some of his poems. This sheet of Li Po’s The Rover of Chao contains digitally printed Chinese characters and images, and traditional letterpress printing. Chemistry student Xiu Su was awarded the 2010 Letterpress Prize for his work.
