We invite you to:

In this poetry collection, John Sibley Williams explores the inner and outer landscapes encountered on a journey to Iceland. As with physical landscapes, surprising perspectives are revealed by each step. Lava and ice, civilization and wilderness, family and solitude–these apparent contradictions collide inside poems which beg to be read aloud, just as their Nordic ancestors were around Iceland’s first man made fires.

In addition to standard chapbooks, we have a deluxe package available. Megan & J.S. Graustein have collaborated to produce a limited edition print broadside of the poem “Winter” from the chapbook. Only five were produced, two of which are available for general sale at a cost of $30 which includes a signature edition copy of the chapbook and shipping.

If you miss out on the limited edition prints, you may purchase digital reproductions through RedBubble in a variety of formats.
