A letterpress chapbook, published by Flat Bay Press in collaboration with Stone Island Press. Hand-printed and bound in the Book Arts Studio at the University of Maine at Machias in the fall of 2010, in an edition of 100. Frontispiece from a painting by Susan Hammond.
"A distinctive voice, a fresh image-life, and something happens."
-- Marion Stocking, founding editor of the Beloit Poetry Journal.
Leonore Hildebrandt writes with rich language in a mode that intrigues. Her poetry resembles the painting by Susan Hammond that is tipped in on the front flyleaf of this exquisitely designed chapbook: abstract, light-streaked, hinting at parallel worlds. Hammond's brushstrokes activate a canvas while Hildebrandt's lines, arranged in finely-wrought stanzas, lend energy to the page. Order supports imagination.
