Both this weekend, through the powers of astral projection, where we will release our newest artist book Little Thoughts by Jillian Gomez:
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
