Default poetry book

My book The Harvest and the Lamp is up for preorder now: Voilà.

The lettering on the cover is hand-drawn calligraphy by the amazing Gaynor Goffe. The collection is the third in the Colosseum Books series of Franciscan University Press (Steubenville, Ohio), edited by James Matthew Wilson.

Fantastic news, Andrew!!!

And the lettering it truly beautiful. The cover needs no other adornment. It's so elegant!

Can't wait to hold a copy in my hands.

Huge congrats, Andrew!!! This is really impressive, and especially coming out right after your Dante book Love’s Scribe. Wow—definitely a must-have.

Hi Cally, yes, isn't the calligraphy elegant? I considered a cover image but preferred the understated cover with the lettering. Gaynor does wonderful work. I'll tell her you like it. Thanks for the congrats!

Siham, yeah, the two books together. A bit too much at once, to be honest. I didn't know I'd be proofreading/copyediting two books at the same time, but that's the way it worked out. Let's just say I'm glad to see them in print instead of in production. Thanks for the kudos!

Andrew
