CBAA Newsletter, September 2009: "The exhibition, Somewhere Far From Habit, is a collaboration of some of the country’s most inspiring poets and most exciting book artists. The show pairs ten poets with ten book artists, in which the artists are creating one of a kind or limited edition artist’s books inspired by the poets’ work. In addition, ten artists were hand-selected to create corresponding letterpress printed broadsides (edition of forty-five) reflecting each of the highlighted poems. [This is the collection of those 10 broadsides, each signed or initialed by the letterpress printer.]
"Somewhere Far From Habit exemplifies the celebration of life found in both art and poetry, a melding of these artistic communities who share a mutual love: the love of the book."
