Broadsheet: Pre-conception



* * *

So I'm doing a signing on Thursday, eh? At McNally's. And Sara Harms recommended that I print a few poems on fancy paper so that people can see what it is that I do without committing to the whole book.

And so I asked Julia Michaud of Instant Noodles. The brilliant designer I'm doing the JackPine chapbook with.

My only criterion were that her design had to nod towards the cover Palimpsest designed. Be in keeping with the cover Palimpsest designed.

And now I feel like weeping. (And planting a chestnut tree...)

So lovely!

Brilliant idea! I love the play between the tenderness of the poetry and the crispness of the photography. Please save me a copy on Thursday...

Thanks, all. Julia is VERY good, isn't she?

Just read your book a few weeks ago and I love the prints. They are fantastic! Any notion of selling them separately?

And agreed - Julia is very good.

Well, harlot, I'd be happy to give you one...just lemme know a convenient pick up/drop off spot.
