The new Curbside book is here! The new Curbside book is here!

The Chapbook, by Charles Bane, Jr.

The Chapbook, by Charles Bane, Jr.

I recently received in the mail the latest from our friends over at Chicago small press Curbside Splendor, a book of poetry by Charles Bane, Jr., simply called The Chapbook; and I was delighted and surprised when looking through it to see the book filled with full-color illustrations, which is why I thought I'd snap a couple of shots and post them here. This is an expensive and unusual thing for a basement press to pull off, and the resulting book looks incredibly sharp as a result, so I just wanted to congratulate Victor David Giron and the whole crew over there for what promises to be a popular new title. The book officially gets released on July 2nd, but you can pre-order it at their website right now if you want.
