For You in Full Bloom and Der Pyjamaist!!
April 12, 2009
So Betsy at Pilot Books has some copies of For You in Full Bloom, the chapbook I wrote of poems based on paintings by Chris Uphues, available for sale. It was a really limited run, and we sold most of the books at AWP this year, so we weren’t sure if we’d have enough to sell on the web. But apparently there are a few copies left, so if anyone is interested email — editors [at] pilotpoetry [dot] com — we might do another run later in the year for some events in NY and San Francisco, stay tuned! Betsy and her partner Meghan Dewar did an absolutely unbelievable job with the book, it’s bound with metal bolts. Here is one of the poems, along with one of Chris’s paintings.
Also, I just got word from Luxbooks that the German graphic novel edition of The Pajamaist (Der Pyjamaist, see the cover in a post below) is off to the printer! I saw the proofs, and the drawings by Martina Hoffman are unbelievable, and the translations by German poet Ron Winkler are terrific. When I actually have copies in hand I will post an announcement here. They have also expressed some interest in doing an English language version with the same drawings.
