Two New Small Fires Releases
Live, From the Delay is a beautiful, collaged poem by Ryan Flaherty. The book is designed to be read like a standard codex (with fold down accordions) or folded out and read as a wall hanging (as shown above).
Letterpressed on cotton/abaca textweight sheets, with covers comprised of Alabama Kozo, Abaca, Cotton, Flax, and Linen. Limited edition of 65.
From the author's process: "Rather than composed, the poem was constucted from several years' worth of notes, which were either written for this poem or were pieces that fell off other poems. Over a month long period, I cobbled these fragments together on 3 X 6 sheets of paper tacked to an unused door propped up in my attic."
Abandoned Tales is a collection of screwy, perverted, beautiful folk tales by Michael Lee.
A single pamphlet letterpressed on entirely on three different handmade papers made by Small Fires Press.
Illustrations by Cherie Weaver.
Edition of 65.
