The Set Category title for OPEN•SET 2025 is The Helen Fragments by Editions Koch. This book is a collaboration between two contemporary artists who have come together over an ancient text that has fascinated readers for millennia. The poet and printer, Richard Seibert, has selected portions from Homer’s Iliad that tell the tumultuous story of Helen of Troy and has translated them from the original Greek into contemporary lyric. Winifred McNeill, a New York-based artist, completed over a hundred drawings for this project.
