The Gorgeous Nothings is the the first full-color facsimile edition of Emily Dickinson's manuscripts ever to appear. This deluxe edition includes full-scale reproductions of Dickinson's late writings, presenting this crucially important, experimental body of work exactly as she wrote it, on carefully deconstructed scraps of envelopes, each accompanied by a transcription to facilitate reading of the original. The Gorgeous Nothings offers a never-before possible glimpse into the process of one our most important poets.

Emily Dickinson (1830-1886) is arguably one of America's greatest poets.

Jen Bervin is and artist and poet. She is the author of the artist's book The Dickinson Composites and the curator of an exhibition on rare Dickinson manuscripts from the Oresman Collection.

Marta Werner is the foremost scholar of Dickinson's late work and the editor of Emily Dickinson's Open Folios and Radical Scatters, an electronic archive of Emily Dickinson's late fragments and related texts.

The acclaimed poet Susan Howe, winner of the 2011 Bollingen Prize, is the author of the seminal work My Emily Dickinson.
