Poetry Month-Union River by Paul Marion

Bootstrap Press has just published Union River, a collection of writing spanning over 40 years by my friend Paul Marion. Poet Kate Hanson Foster has written an insightful review on the Boston Small Press and Poetry Scene blog. Do check it out.

Paul and I have been friends since the late '70s and fellow travelers in the worlds of books, words, art, and Lowell. We collaborated on South Common Haiku and hope to find another project to do together. Here's a calligraphed version of his poem Green Windows. I'll be sharing examples of his poems with my calligraphy for the next few days. The writing was done with gouache and pen and the hands with acrylic.

The book is available here.
