Jim Lee is a publisher, printmaker, and professor of printmaking. Lee made use of his 1991 residency at Brandywine Workshop and Archives, Philadelphia, to produce a book illustrating the poetry of Jesse Glass. Alchemical Lion is a poem that moves back and forth from the present to the past. This temporal theme is well adapted to the techniques of offset lithography, in which images can be layered one over the other and locate text within the boundaries of the image. The syncopation of images, color, and words creates an experience that is truly alchemical or magical. "Alchemical Lion" refers to both the poem and the experience.
