Twelve short prose pieces that take place in a world just next to ours, resembling the clenched teeth of a child — how sharp they are & what effect they have on the changing color of the eyes. Unsettling & many wonderful things.

Twelve pages in a cardboard case wrapped with a red ribbon. All of the text is hand-set and letterpress printed. On the back of each page, a hand-printed woodcut of a house with a hat, from a drawing by Patrick Cottrell. Edition of 30, signed & numbered. 5 x 6 1/2”
