“A Gift of Stars” (KSE #124) now available!

Filed under: Uncategorized — kendrasteinereditions @ 9:35 am


“Look to the skies for the signs of things to come, ” they say.

And that’s what Michael Jacobson and I have done in our new collaborative chapbook, A GIFT OF STARS (KSE #124).

A Warhol-esque eight-pointed star radiates from the center of this nine-page creation onto eight different visions of image and word and symbol. Michael in Minnesota and yours truly in Texas used the “same” seamless sky, 1500 miles apart, as our inspiration, shooting arrows at the same target from differing locations and perspectives over a two-month period of work.

We hope you find the end result interesting and worthwhile.

Michael Jacobson is author of THE GIANT’S FENCE, curator of the blog
The New Post-Literate, and major figure in the asemic writing movement.
