It’s like a valentine in December

Holiday shoppers, oh hello. These prints I designed and letterpressed are for sale! A line from the poem i love you much(most beautiful darling) by ee cummings, full text follows. Maybe a nice prezzy this Hanukkah/Christmas for someone you like-like or just really love (lady friend, best friend, mum) or for yourself. Each is printed on a Vandercook cylinder letterpress using wood and lead type. A limited edition, each is signed and numbered. 11″x15″ measurement. Purchase one here. And if you happen to be in Finland this month, all entries for the Arctic Flipbook Contest (42 books,11 countries) are part of the December exhibit at Napa Gallery in Helsinki, my Stan the Man included.

i love you much(most beautiful darling)

more than anyone on the earth and i
like you better than everything in the sky

–sunlight and singing welcome your coming

although winter may be everywhere
with such a silence and such a darkness
noone can quite begin to guess

(except my life)the true time of year–

and if what calls itself a world should have
the luck to hear such singing(or glimpse such
sunlight as will leap higher than high
through gayer than gayest someone’s heart at your each

nearness)everyone certainly would(my
most beautiful darling)believe in nothing but love

ee cummings
