new poems from Ninja Press

The Sirens, a new book of my poetry from the marvellous press of Carolee Campbell, Ninja Press, is now available. The Prospectus reads, inter alia -

These previously unpublished poems are hand set in Eve and Paramount printed on gampi torinoko, handmade by the late Masao Seki on Shikoku Island, Japan. The decorative device repeated throughout the text is embellished by hand with gold and silver pigments, as is the titling. The text is sewn through the black Asahi cloth spine with gray silk cord echoing the silver embellishments. The boards are covered in hanji, handmade at the Jang Ji Bang papermill in Gapyeong, Korea. . . Design and execution are by Carolee Campbell whose photographs line both front and back boards. There are 80 signed and numbered copies, with 8 lettered hors commerce. 10.5 x 5.25 inches, 28 pages. $450.
