Letterpress

My goal this summer is to do a chapbook of a hiking trip to Cathedral Park in Canada.  I will be doing it in letterpress so brevity will be of great concern.  It will be about twelve pages on quality paper, hand sewn binding and a mix of haiku and other short forms.  Not sure of the print types that will be available to me yet.  Frank at dVerse has asked us to consider brevity so I am starting my project.  Each poem would be on its own page.

  1. Best wishes on the chapbook. Using letterpress is another motivation for brevity. Brevity not only focuses the reader but the writer as well. I liked all of the haiku especially the last one about grinding stones while walking. They make me want to walk there someday as well.
