Hosta for Sale

Not really, but I do have books for sale on eBay.
And just a brief note to say that Ottawa poet, performer, bookseller, publisher, jwcurry put out another postcard this week as part of his Curvd H&Z imprint. Here's what they look like:

The postcard (#98) was inspired by my photograph of a hosta in my front yard last summer, and bp Nichol's beloved letter "H". On a lark last July, I printed and sent curry a similar homemade postcard thinking he might enjoy it and the caption. He did. So much so he told me that he wanted to publish a 120 of them! The back of the cardstock is a mauve colour which curry glued onto the photo which measures 3.75in x 5.75in.

The other day he gave me the artist's cut of 25% of the print run...which makes that...uhh...carry the two... 30 of them. The cards get mailed out to his Room 302 subscriber base. Otherwise, he's selling the remainder for $2.00 each, and so will I. Drop curry or I a note if you would like a card. The photo below shows the card's actual colours.

Great snap, John. Your photos always seem to have something hidden behind, within, or outside of them; the true sign of photog-excellence.

For a second I thought I was on Jbay.
