A Toss of Those Socks

Ashland, KY: BullHead Books, 2020. First Edition. Stapled Wrappers. A chapbook with the title poem by Joe Napora, the passionate & prolific American poet, editor, publisher & activist. Subtitled "Will Never Land on the Hand Rail Again/ [a translation]," this recent production of Napora's own BullHead imprint is rather enigmatic, with no information, including the identity of the 19th-century gentleman whose image is repeated on covers (perhaps an ancestor of Napora?). With various font sizes & line shapes, the text resembles stream-of-consciousness or even Burroughsian cut-ups, with an apparent theme being the navigation of nature. A beautiful production in wrappers with sewn binding, no colophon or even copyright page. As a negative image of the mysterious figure says in a bubble on front cover: "What?" A rare, challenging Napora collectible. In very fine condition with only a few tiny bumps at edges & corners of front, back covers & sewn spine. Interior very fine with only tiny bumps to mostly upper corners of some page leaves. Very Fine. [Item #4065]
