This is my first book of selected poems published by Bottle of Smoke Press. Five poems are accompanied by five full-color watercolor and ink illustrations, which were published in January of 2011. Book size: 8.5 x 7 inches. (20pp).
Both the hardcover and soft cover are letterpress, printed in two colors on fine papers. These books are limited to an edition of 86 in total: 10 signed deluxe hardcover with original illustrations in a custom slipcase; 26 signed and lettered hardcover copies; and 50 soft cover copies. Monsters on Jasmine St. is featured in many private collections and select library collections, such as Florida Atlantic University, CSU East Bay University Library, the University of Delaware Library, and the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale University.
I am now selling a couple here. This is one of my favorite publications here and I'm flattered that Bill Roberts of BOS Press thought well enough of my poetry to publish it.
The copies I am selling are special. yes, they are signed, but they also include original colored art inside made with colored pencil and ink.
