The Cremation of Sam McGee

logoJENNA FARLEIGH, "07 | 2007 Letterpress Prize
"The Cremation of Sam McGee" by Robert Service: letterpress on vellum

"'The Cremation of Sam McGee' is one of my favorite poems. It was set and printed on vellum to capture the ghost-story nature of the poem. Wood type was used for the title. As I am from Alaska this poem has a lot of meaning for me!"
