Apollo | Melissa Ginsburg
Through these deftly woven poems Melissa Ginsburg’s Apollo maps a constellation of minds in orbit—celestial, human, machine—while brushing Greek mythology and sociopolitical commentary along the way. The voices within are magnetized, fueled with a rich longing as they explore the deceptions of perspective and the permeability of truth. Expect all the glitter Ginsburg is known for: wry humor, intense lyricism, provocative musing.
Hand-set and letterpress printed; stitched with Trebizond silk thread into Canson Ingres endpapers.
28 pages, 5 x 9 inches
Edition of 75
