Fish – Fall 2019

If I’d been paying closer attention in late August, I would have realized that it was going to be all about fish for the foreseeable future. But, I’d just finished Accident and was nearly done with Watershed and now had my mind on a few other things, like enjoying the last of warm weather with a trip to western and northern Michigan.

Watershed back from the Printer

Detail of Helen Gotlib c work used in WatershedWe did a quick tour of Western Michigan at peak color. There was even a brief chat about steelheads with a fisherman along the Manistee River. On the way home, we were able to pick up the boxes of Watershed fresh from the printer. We are thrilled with the finished book and are very appreciative of all involved. Now we begin the work of releasing it into the world!

We’d love to share Watershed with you!

Accident is now shipping

Glass art used in back matter of Accident

Full details.

Cover for Watershed

Cover of Watershed

Though I had decided on a cover image after my visit to Helen Gotlib’s, I needed the creative design work of Jean Buescher Bartlett to make the cover (and the interior) come alive. Jean specializes in creating fine art books, and in addition, she has keen sensitivity to poetry and she reads each manuscript through several times to make a good match between words and presentation. Her choices of book size and fonts were a happy new departure for us and the cover colors seem just right for the book.

Front and back cover of AccidentThis is the full (front and back) cover for Accident. It is indeed a crop I found when I visited Janet Kelman’s studio in July.

Artwork for Accident

Photo of glass art for AccidentI had a great visit today with Janet Kelman and I believe I have found the cover for Accident in this piece of glass art. It might not be visible in this photograph, but it has a crack from an “accident”. I’ll get Colin to make a more formal photograph which we’ll be able to crop for use on the cover.
