Ariel Gordon’s How to Make a Collage offers a scrapbook of extraordinary everydayness. Its poems decoupage tender snapshots beside snappy comebacks. Fairy tale moments foment against ailing flesh. Sly instructions for loving fester within slovenly destructions of living. A beautiful, gluey mess of memory, decay, and dreams!


Type set in 10 & 12pt Monotype Bembo and printed on Crane Lettra papers, then sewn and bound into a wrapper of Arturo Artistico.
