Nau Sea Sea Sick

Stories by John Moore, Katherine Mansfield, Stephen Crane, Isabella Bird, Eileen Myles, et. al. Illustrated by Kay Rosen.

Nau Sea Sea Sick is a collection of highly unusual sea stories, selected and illustrated by American artist Kay Rosen. Rosen's selection ranges across literary eras and genres: John Moore's “Local Boy Makes Good”; Katherine Mansfield's “The Voyage”; Stephen Crane's “The Open Boat”; Isabella Bird's “The Hawaiian Archipelago, Letter I”; John Aaron Rosen's “Stranger in the Empty Night” and Eileen Myles' “Everyday Barf.” Rosen has been exploring the visual properties of words for over 25 years, approaching language as a material to construct with, and to confound, and building word installations that delight in the surfaces of short phrases, words and letterforms. Printed in French fold format, Nau Sea Sea Sick is part of the Four Corners Familiars series that invites contemporary artists to respond to the classics of literature, which also includes editions of Bram Stoker's Dracula and Franz Kafka's Blumfeld, an Elderly Bachelor.

FROM THE BOOK
"A white, unwinking, scintillating sun blazed down upon Auckland, New Zealand. Along the white glaring road from Onehung, dusty trees and calla lilies drooped with the heat. Dusty thickets sheltered the cicada, whose triumphant din grated and rasped through the palpitating atmosphere. In dusty enclosures, supposed to be gardens, shriveled geraniums scattered sparsely alone defied the heat. Flags drooped in the stifling air. Men on the verge of sunstroke plied their tasks mechanically, like automatons. Dogs, with flabby and protruding tongues, hid themselves away under archway shadows. The stones of the sidewalks and the brick of the houses radiated a furnace heat. All nature was limp, dusty, groaning, gasping. The day was the climax of a burning fortnight, of heat, drought and dust, of baked, cracked, dewless land and oily breezeless seas, of glaring days, passing through fierce fiery sunsets into stifling nights."
--Excerpted from Isabella L. Bird's story, "The Hawaiian Archipelago" in Nau Sea Sea Sick.
