Holiday Recommendations Guest Post #3: kevin mcpherson eckhoff
i'm sending along two, not because i'm trying to be an asshole, but because i believe in both of them. my first choice, a holiday-themed gem, turned into a bit of a foible. impossible to find much online for the press, but here's the something i have on it:
A Christmas Foible
Mount Pleasant, ON: Laurel Reed Books, 2014
12pp, 8.5" x 5.5" hand-sewn chapbook
Edition of 166
A facsimile of a single-edition handwritten chapbook gifted to Nelson Ball and Barbara Caruso by nichol in 1969. Hand-stamped covers.
$10 (includes shipping)
Laurel Reed Books
206 Ellis Ave
Mt. Peasant, ON
the second choice i believe in with a year-round cure-ye-aw-city! and it's of/by a current young and real artist writer, so maybe better to give props to the living? also, tried to mimic the biblioinfo style, but this second one seems a li'l meesy... apologies for any inconsistencies.
