Sleep. In the fall of 2004, the entire staff of Kat Ran Press was particularly pleased to announce the publication of its newest book, Sleep, a short story by Haruki Murakami with multi-color etchings by John Gibson. Translated from the Japanese by Jay Rubin, Takashima Professor of Japanese Humanities at Harvard University and author of Haruki Murakami and the Music of Words, “Sleep” was originally published in the New Yorker and recently adapted for the stage by Complicite, the London-based theater group, and the Setagaya Public Theater of Japan. Considered by many to be Japan’s most popular and influential author, Murakami tells the story of a woman who ignores conventional wisdom by embracing more than two weeks of sleeplessness (with the aid of Anna Karenina). Composed in Dante types by Michael and Winifred Bixler of Skaneateles, New York, the fifty-six pages of Sleep have been printed at Kat Ran Press on handmade Twinrocker papers. The four etchings by John Gibson, whose paintings may be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, and the Museum at the Rhode Island School of Design (among others), have been printed by Peter Pettengill and his exemplary staff at Wingate Studio in Hinsdale, New Hampshire. The entire edition has been carefully bound in full leather and boxed by Claudia Cohen at her Seattle, Washington, bindery. There were sixty copies, of which forty-five were for sale, signed by the author, translator and artist. Alas, this title is out of print. Cover Shot
