About Glenn Thomas
Glenn Thomas (New Jersey, 1944) Has lived and worked in Amsterdam since 1970. Dialogues on an Aging Existence is his fourth book. Along with his autobiographical The Painting (Plantage Press, 2008) he has published two projects with the writer Paul Auster. In The Inner Life of Martin Frost (Mark Batty Publisher, 2008) a text from Auster’s The Book of Illusions is combined in an innovative typographical way with 30 drawings.
My mouth is tired now: Peter Stillman’s monologue is a portfolio of eight silkscreen prints combining drawings with a text from The New York Trilogy?–?The City of Glass.

The critics on earlier publications of Glenn Thomas and the Plantage Press:
Paul Auster and Glenn Thomas’ The Inner Life of Martin Frost:
Pieter Steinz (NRC Handelsblad): ‘[…] with some thirty black and white drawings impressive as well as claustrophobic […].’
Fred Shawker (DTG Magazine, New York): ‘I believe this will, some day, be a collector’s book?–?and will certainly go down in history as one of the ground-breaking designs of this decade?–?perhaps the millennium.’
Lev Lunc’s Uitgaand schrijven nr. 37:
Arjan Peters (de Volkskrant): The booklet exhibits an enormous respect for the paper, by the sublime design, linen back, and
lino-cuts. I could have known: this paper is inspired. […] My first Lev Lunc gets a place of honor in the book case.’
