We're nine days into our Kickstarter project, and well on the way to reaching
our first stretch goal of $10,000 to help fund the illustrated
edition. We have already reached just over $2,500, 25% of our new goal!
Check out our new rewards, including beautiful
miniature letterpress chapbooks of verses by both our beloved Neruda and
Kirsten Miles, a member of a Book Arts organization in Charlottesville,
Virginia, contributes five miniature books from a collection made by members.
She explores the relationship of the book form to the poem with her cover art
and unique "windows" and is working on a similar book with a verse from "The
Liberators", from the Canto.
The second book will also be letterpressed, with arboreal-themed cover art and
windows into the canopy of the poem.
The Emily Dickinson text is untitled poem #52 in Thomas Johnson's
edition: "Whether my bark when down at sea . . ." The Neruda text is 8
lines from Canto
IV, "The Liberators".
