Artist Alex Katz created etchings on four inch square plates for this livre d’artiste. The imagery for Gloria spans from people to landscapes, to bobbing boats, to a munching cow. The figures seem to exist in a sophisticated environment, as urbane and glamorous as the poems they face. The black, white and gray etchings are varied in technique and effect. 

About the poet, Bernadette Mayer has written: “Berkson’s poetry emerges with an elegant reticence from the rooms of the traditionally sublime to greet the present moment with unexpected splendor, ease of observation, metaphysic wit.”
