Derrick M/Peninsula’s Now are putting out a series of handmade books. Here’s the thing: they’re not for sale. Instead, all copies include instructions to read, fill out the library card, and then pass them along. I love this idea–reading a book with with the shadow of previous readers at yr side, how each book becomes a communal artifact.
DM was kind enough to put out a series a short poems by Cheryl and I (above)–“The Esme Poems.” We tried to follow the ephemeral spirit of the press and write quickly. Can’t wait to see the finished product and pass some copies on to you. Wait, do you want one?
Thanks to DM and the people who put it together. They’re open for submissions (see also hilarious alternative spelling of Cheryl’s name!).
