I WRITE THIS POEM DIRECTLY IN THE STICK is a hand-set, letterpressed poem that I wrote as I picked up the type out of the case. It's only available on these cards.
This unique piece is 8 x 6 inches, set in 10-point ATF Century Schoolbook type. It was hand-printed in three colors on 80# laid ivory cards, using my 1890's era 5 x 7 platen press. It is strictly limited to 50 signed, numbered copies.
Be one of only 40 people in the world to own this poem, artwork, printing project, conceptual art piece - however you want to define it, there is absolutely nothing else like it anywhere. Guaranteed!
I didn't bleed for this, but I did tear a ligament in my elbow, if that counts as suffering for your art. It should since it took half a year to begin to heal.
It comes complete with uneven letterpress printing and a genuine spelling error!
Yes, the name on the card is Michael. That's my old name. Now I'm Hannah XX. Don't be confused, it's just the modern world coming to make you question everything you think you know. You'll be fine.
