Textile Series #7: Draft 96: Velocity by Rachel Blau DuPlessis
Little Red Leaves couldn’t be more pleased to release this fantastic poem by Rachel Blau DuPlessis. Draft 96: Velocity spans twenty-one gorgeous pages with “pulses uneven pushes/” that circulate through the text. Sewn with (in) textile remnants and recycled window curtains, this 7th (!) textile series chapbook is not to be missed! Buy it now from Paypal!
Currently in production, a new chapbooks by Mac Wellman, Tod Melicker, and Jen Hofer! We will also be announcing our 2012 lineup in early December.
A project of little red leaves, the textile series takes the hand out of “hand-sewn chapbooks.” It’s real work in the age of mechanical reproduction. It’s the little sewing machine that could. It’s ironed and folded and sewn and pulled and the threads stick out. All textile series chapbooks are 5.5″ by 4.25″ with fabric covers scavenged from old curtains, bedsheets and other textile remnants. We consider it a micro-revolution. A call to action against staples, tape and glue. Coming at you em-dashed, a little wrinkled, and needlessly obscure.
