I am so excited about Katie Holten's new book, About Trees. I pre-ordered a copy. You too can pre-order a copy of About Trees at Broken Dimanche Press (BDP). If you pre-order by Wednesday, July 1st, your name will be included in the book as an early supporter.
Also, to celebrate Katie's residency, BDP is offering pre-sale copies of About Trees with free world-wide shipping and a set of bookmarks. They also have some new drawings and prints available. All proceeds go towards production costs. The book will be released in the USA September 18-20, 2015.
More about the book:
About Trees is an artist book by Katie Holten. It will be the first book in BDP's new series: Parapoetics - a Literature beyond the Human. Holten has created an alphabet from her tree drawings and made a new typeface called Trees. Registering a crisis of representation, About Trees considers our relationship with language, nature, information, drawing, ecology, memory, systems, and time in the Anthropocene.
