Here’s a lovely post from Marthe Reed, publisher at Nous-Zot press, on hand-stitching chapbooks from volume 2 of thecanadaproject. An excerpt:
The tragedy of Mrs. Maria,
Church Street at Tyne

un coup de dés, ah-ayee, ah-yee, jamais, jamais.
[We glimpsed the edge of her cherry red coat]…”
Nous-Zot press will also be having a great reading and event in Brooklyn on May 1. I can’t make it, but if you’re in the neighbourhood…
