They’re here! I’ve been waiting for my batch of nanopamphlets to arrive in the mail from Penteract Press over in the UK, and I was delighted to find this bundle waiting in my mailbox (along with a few samples of the press’s many other visual, formal, and constrained poetic projects). Two Houseplants, from above is what the press terms a “nanopamphlet” (which means it’s really tiny) containing two small pieces from a series of visual poems depicting my houseplants, from above. I’ve been working on the series for a long time, but it’s incredibly refreshing to see it materialize in such a beautiful and well-thought-out form. My sincere thanks go out to Penteract for accepting the piece–and doing wonders with it.
I only found out about Penteract rather recently, and I’m actually a little sad to hear that they’re transitioning into a small press from a micropress–mostly because it means they’ll no longer be publishing the leaflets and nanopamphlets that have been their hallmark for some time. Still, I wish them the best with their mission to continue raising the profile of experimental visual and formal poetry through book-length publications. In the meantime, I have a whole whack of nanopamphlets to give away, so make sure you ask for one if you run into me!
As always, happy reading. And happy seeing, too!
