Speckled Trout by Steven Daiber

Please contact 23 Sandy for current availability.
The Burroughs’ essay Speckled Trout first appeared in the October 1870 issue of Atlantic Monthly and again in 1879 in a collection of essays titled Locusts and Wild Honey. John Burroughs was an American naturalist, completing 23 volumes of essays of nature writing. His career spanned a friendship with Walt Whitman in Washington DC during the Civil War to camping trips with Roosevelt, Ford, Edison and Muir in the first decades of this century. Daiber’s interest in the Burroughs essay is first one of passion; for the art of the book, Burroughs’ writing, fishing, and camping.  The Speckled Trout  will be of interest to the naturalist, transcendental and non-fiction literature readers, collectors of small press editions, fans of John Burroughs, and those who fish.

Artist Bio

Red Trillium Press is the work of Steven Daiber based in Massachusetts. Daiber has worked with books for more than twenty years. He has been to Cuba regularly since 2001 and has facilitated dialogue between Cuban and foreign artists. His books create real, metaphorical objects: palaces of the memory in which each element underscores a meaning. The books he creates in collaboration with Cuban artists tell their stories of the lived reality in Cuba in the 21st century. Daiber’s professional work as an artist originated with training in drawing and painting, with a M.F.A. from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 1981 and a B.F.A. from the University of Delaware in 1978.
