Ashland, KY: BullHead Books, 2018. First Edition. Sewn Wrappers. Inscribed & signed by Joe Napora to Thomas Rain Crowe. A collection of poems by Joe Napora, the passionate & prolific American poet, editor, publisher & activist. As Napora explains in an afterword following the poems, they are "formed within the frame" of two vintage 1927 quotes, one by the Nicaraguan revolutionary Augusto Cesar Sandino & the other by Robert Olds, a United States Undersecretary of State. A stunning chapbook production of Napora's own BullHead imprint in sewn wrappers with powerful cover & interior graphics by Napora. On the title page, Napora has hand-written & signed in pencil: For Thomas/ (drawing of compass or star)/ Alorzzo(?)!/ (signed) Joe."

Crowe & Napora are long-standing close friends & colleagues. A very rare, provocative & exemplary Napora collectible with important poet-to-poet provenance & association.

Interior very fine with only miniscule bumps to corners of some page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #4055]
