When Joyce pressed Ezra Pound for his opinion of the verse Joyce had written since Chamber Music, Pound was dismissive: “They belong in the bible or in the family album with the portraits.” This luxurious publication, featuring ornate lettering by Lucia Joyce, to some extent follows Pound’s directive, as a father-daughter collaboration formatted like a scrapbook. Twenty-five copies were printed. The edition, which Joyce referred to simply as “Lucia’s book,” came about through his many attempts to interest publishers in Lucia’s work. Obelisk, the Paris publisher of Pomes, eventually brought out her illuminated Chaucer A.B.C. in 1936.
