My dad’s advice is, “bury yourself in your work.” My mom’s advice is, “channel the energy into bookmaking.” I tend to prioritize people/relationships over work. But in this case I may have to make an exception, since I need to work. The goals for today are to make a stab at my Renaissance Prose paper and hook up the new printer. First things off the line: 4SQ 1.8, Lorraine’s, derek’s, rob’s, and Jen’s chapbooks (each ltd. to 25, each $10); a reprint of bird-book ($6, ltd. to 10), and a reprint of Problemattica ($6, ltd. to 25). Very exciting.
(bird-book is available for free online from Detumescence, but the print presentation is important to the work. This edition will be slightly different from the last two. You can read Steve’s review of the web version here.)
If I owe you chapbooks from trades, now would be a good time to remind me.
