Gorgeous Work from Greying Ghost
This past week I received a package from Greying Ghost Press out of Salem, MA. They did a promo sale recently where they’d send 5 specific books, a mystery book and some ephemera for only $25. I don’t have a lot of money, but that’s a great deal no matter how you look at it.
Here’s what the package included:
- J.A. Tyler – ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ
- Brennen Wysong – Three pieces (pamphlet #14)
- Peter Berghoff – Hank Williams
- A picture of Lassie gathering firewood
- Garth Graeper – By Deer Light
- Kathleen Rooney – After Robinson Has Gone
- Michael Bernstein – Nanostars
- A small note card “Amphibious” & “Antipathy”
- Travis Brown – In Lieu of Hartshorn
- Tony Mancus – The Pit’s a Hole for Fire (pamphlet #21)
- A found art chapbook with a zebra on it
- Paige Taggart – Polaroid Parade
At the moment I’ve only had time to glance through Polaroid Parade, but each item feels so substantial in hand. The care and attention to detail that went into producing these, dare I say, objets d’art is remarkable. I’ve got a lot of poems to read this weekend and I have zero problem with that.
