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.

50 Dollars

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.

45 Dollars.
