Description

"Anagram Press: ""Hearthstone Firetender's poetry tells the tale of modern witchcraft set in a Maine community garden; an overview of pagan spirituality (complete with gardening tips) conveyed through a story of growing kinship with a secret admirer."" Illustrations: ""Informed by photographs by Michael O'Leary, 2004-2005, using Leica Digilux I, a 1974 Yashica TL-Electro (minus the -electro function) and Uncle Sean's old Kodak Advantix, except where noted in a previous incarnation: by Scott MacDonald, 2004."" Chandler O'Leary, Colophon: ""For many years, my father's garden was the centerpiece of what we called home. Now that I live in a high-rise apartment, a thousand miles away, I miss the fresh tomatoes and all-night canning sessions. Collaborating with Dad on this book is the best way I know how to contribute to the Faery Garden. Sure beats weeding...."" ""Included also is a packet of original illustrations...Inspiration runs the gamut from wallpaper fragments in the Open Book building in Minneapolis; my old art history notes; a conversation in a basement studio at Colorado College; reruns on Nick at Nite; and a hurried drawing in my sketchbook of a Bernini in the Galleria Borghese."" http://www.vampandtramp.com/finepress/a/anagram-press.html"
