things: a quilt for my friend’s birthday. A book. I didn’t mention yet that in conjunction with MIEL and 111O, I’m also making one handmade book each week, in editions from two to…quite a few more than two. I wanted to have a project I could work on all year, and one that would let me try new forms. So books it is. The one above is called SMALL: a manifesto. It comes with a magnifying glass because the type is…small.
Some of these books will be for sale via MIEL’s table at States of Independence, a small press day in Leicester (March 17).
Thank you for your thoughtful engagement on my last post. At one point in the poem (in the excerpts) I am talking in idealistic terms about working and being together, and I say “I never said I could do the things I want you to do”. Which is kind of how I feel about all this. I mean, I want to do it but often fail. But I will continue to try. And to offer my support and understanding for anyone else who is trying, too.
