@BmoreHumane (Baltimore Humane Society) has just contacted us and left us with this wonderful nugget we'd like to share:
"...thanks, for honoring Sybil by donating 50% of your purchases made in the next 24 hours! As a former English major (current book- and poetry-lover), and cat companion myself, I have so much respect for the work you do, and the musing spirit that cats help their humans to nurture."
Pictured above is Dobby who is seeking a cardiac consult and heart medication. We are happy to announce that our donation (consisting of the past year's sales) plus 50% of any sales made in the next 24 hours will be routed to Dobby's care.
Thank you, #Bmore Humane for your kind words and for the wonderful, hard work you do.
On this the anniversary of the passing of our dear friend, Sybil, the press is donating a large portion of the last year's sales to the Baltimore Humane Society. #Bmore Humane, a no-kill shelter and sancturary in the #Baltimore, MD area, provides low-cost spay/neuter, and vaccination procedures, along with low-income pet care. The society also provides funeral, burial, cremation, and bereavement services.
Additionally, for the next 24-hours, 50% of any purchases made will be added to our donation totals. Please, visit our Book Store, Print Shop, and Gift Shop and consider supporting the wonderful Bmore Humane Society.
Sybil Press is proud to announce the release of Geoffrey Tungsten's Grievesome River by Richard Lucyshyn, featuring poetry and illustrations by the author, 2015-16. Each chapbook is hand printed and bound with thread in a limited 1st edition of 30 copies.
“Tungsten is a difficult element. Never alone, it is found only in compounds and must be extracted. Even then it is brittle and difficult to work, but the work is worth it. This is in part because of Tungsten’s permanence – it has the highest melting point of all the elements – and in part because of its density and shine. So it is with Geoffrey Tungsten, whose voice has been extracted it seems from a great morass, only to arrive as fine and robust as carved stone. And, he comes to us from a carver who is never minimal, but who has learned to make carving symphonic. The result is that by following a trace of beauty we glimpse the magic required to make words tell us the truth, or, as Geoffrey himself puts it, to ‘say wing and hear wing.’ Please treat yourself to this small book with big designs on your clavicytherium heart.”
- Jack Christian, author of Family System
