Chapvelope Three, our translation Chapvelope, features a hand-bound chapbook (27# text, 65# cover, linen thread binding), a series of eight hand-cut flashcard broadsides (67# cardstock), and a postcard broadside.

Each element draws attention to the translatability and transmutability of language through the combination of content and form. The offering range from translations of contemporary Chinese poets to selections from an eye-rhyme translation of Homer's Odyssey to a material re-visioning of everyday English words and objects.

Get your envelope stuffed with poetry goodies for only $12 (S&H included).
