Familiars in the Undergrowth

image © Tate

Image © Tate: “Undergrowth,” 1941, Eliot Hodgkin (1905-1987) Presented by the Trustees of the Chantrey Bequest 1943

We are very happy to confirm that the image Holly was hoping to see for the cover of Familiars has now been successfully licensed from the Tate, London. It is “Undergrowth” by the British artist Eliot Hodgkin. It conveys the depth and mystery of the natural world – just perfect for Holly’s work.

Watershed at MidCurrent

Very nice review of Cameron Scott’s poetry chapbook Watershed by Spencer Durrant on the MidCurrent website.

“You’ll read Watershed and likely think more deeply about your own place in the world – the one with fish, and the one without them.” Thank you, Spencer!

Familiars coming into view

With all of our collective challenges we have felt lucky to have unique poetry to work on and carry us through this time. Our work has resulted in a beautiful selection and sequencing of poems and a title – Familiars. There’s still a lot of work to do: book design, type-setting, illustration, and cover creation.

Accident at the Eric Hoffer Awards

I was very pleased to learn that Accident by Caroline Maun was a Finalist in the recent Eric Hoffer Book Awards for 2020. Well done Caroline!

New work from Keith Taylor and Isle Royale

We have received a new manuscript from Keith Taylor. In 2019 he was a repeat artist-in-residence on Isle Royale NP in Lake Superior. These works are an expression of his wonder and appreciation of the wilderness and the National Park Service, and his experiences on the island. We expect to publish Let Them Be Left later this year.

New Work from Holly Wren Spaulding

We have received a first draft of Holly’s new poetry that we first heard and saw in Leelanau, Michigan as part of her artist in residency at the Cultural Center. Everyone in the audience was wowed by her presentation and asking when the poems that were exhibited would be available in book form (Holly had brought letterpress broadsides to display on the walls and sell at the event). We were very excited to be offered this manuscript, and now that we have her text, we are getting to work.

Cold-Running Current off to the printer

As often happens, the last details to finalize were in the cover, but we are happy now and the book has been uploaded to the printer and copies should be here before the end of the year!
